Ernest Tong 1) Why might spontaneous generation have been more likely in the past than it is now? -early conditions were prime for spontaneous condition, more chaotic, colder, miller urey experiment Universally understood genetic code 3) Why is mitochondrial DNA easier to study than nuclear DNA? Mitochondrial DNA doesn’t mutate as often and the sequence of mtDNA is conserved, no crossing over, less mutation, using formula for a rate of change of mutation so we can see how many years ago we had an ancestor, etc 4) Would mitochondrial DNA be useful to identify someone? Too redundant since it doesn’t undergo crossing over so its not unique to anyone, but we can disprove the relationship between the czars. 5) How are the conclusions reached from mitochondrial DNA from populations and individuals similar and different? You can see across populations how mtDNA is related through populations while individuals differ in one population in geological locations. But within one geographical location
