Unformatted text preview: Some assumptions made by the users of molecular sequencing include: Phenotypic (outward appearance) evolutionary changes accompanied by genetic (hereditary) changes occur over time in organisms. Long time intervals result in the accumulation of more changes. Organisms that have the most similarities in their gene sequences are more closely related than those with fewer; they have had a shorter time in which to evolve different phenotypes and genotypes. The groups with widely different sequences must have separated at an earlier time in the evolutionary past....
