Specific complex and genes Ribosome and protein and RNA RNA polymerase protein - What they mean for the tree of life. All organisms derived from one root (LUCA) - Why these cannot be used to infer branching patterns The phenotype of all organisms has change a lots since the beginning of life. The only factual evidences are genetic sequences. rRNA and the tree of life - How a universal gene can be used to infer phylogeny.
