Molecular Phylogenetic Tree
It is now relatively easy to determine the nucleotide sequence of DNA and construct a phylogenetic tree with the aid of a personal computer using techniques taken from analytical biochemistry. To be able to effectively evaluate the resultant phylogenetic tree, however, one must have a fundamental understanding of the DNA structure, population genetics, and molecular evolution.
