    Default Comparisons of the amino acid sequences of proteins or the number of

    nucleotide sequences of genes can shed? Comparisons of the amino acid sequences of proteins or the number of nucleotide sequences of genes can shed light on the evolutionary divergence of related organisms. Would you expect all the proteins or genes of a given set of organisms living on earth today to show the same degree of divergence? Why or why not? make an evolution connection.

    The longer ago to species "split" the more difference there is in their dna sequences (and therefore their amino acid sequences in their protiens). Chimps and humans have similar dna and shared a common ancestor much more recently than say humans and ants, which have more differences in their dna
