Notes, Comments and Updates

What's the point?

  1. to be able to describe why ssu-rRNA is not always the best choice for phylogenetic analysis
  2. to describe how other RNA sequences can be used for phylogenetic analysis
  3. to describe how protein sequences can be used for phylogenetic analysis - and why these are not as good (in general) as RNA-encoding sequences
  4. to describe how multiple sequences can be used at once to generate a phylogenetic tree
