Lenell Davis BIO 100 L 11/11/2009 DISCUSSION The purpose of this experiment was to use the National Center for Biotechnology Information databases to find the closest phylogenetic relative for Corpulentus maritus . The information gained from the DNA sequence of Corpulentus maritus was compared to the Entrez nucleotide database. There were multiple sequences in the database that matched the DNA sequence, but it was possible to narrow down those choices based on a general score, E-value, identity score and gap value. The general score signaled how well the sequences match [1]. The E-value indicated the likely hood that the match would happen by chance [1]. Identity indicated how many of the nucleotides between the sequences match and is shown as a percentage [1]. The gap value showed how many mismatches occurred [1]. Only two sequences, both from the same organism, had the best of these values. The general scores were 1523, the E-values were 0, the identities were 99% and the gap values were 0%. Based on that information, it was

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
