Unformatted text preview: help with this process? After homologous sequences are aligned, phylogenetic trees are reconstructed by computers o Describe these three reconstruction programs: Distance methods Parsimony methods Likelihood methods Even though phylogenetic trees mainly use ssu rRNA (a small portion of an entire genome), studies using larger portions of the genome devoted to protein synthesis show similar evolutionary relationships o Why? These components interact with each other and coevolve DNA/DNA Hybridization What is metagenomics , and how does it allow us to obtain genomic sequences for normally uncultivatable microbes? This picture explains DNA/DNA Hybridization fairly well. Note that that DNA/DNA hybridization methods are relatively outdated. This method was once used to gage how closely organisms were related to one another....
