Unformatted text preview: enes. Now we look further at the complex of genes that codes for
different anatomical traits, visible to the naked eye. In neo-Darwinian terms, these
are accumulations of genetic changes that have led to macroevolution. Indels, SINES and LINES
• in order to calculate genetic distance between populations, we first
have to calculate within-group variation. Generally, mitochondrial
DNA, the Y chromatid and/or junk genes are chosen. We look at:
Indels: some nucleotide sequences are deleted while others are
SINES and LINES: all are insertions.
– Some have few nucleotides (short interspersed nuclear
hort nterspersed uclear
elements) and some have many (long interspersed nuclear
ong nterspersed ucl...
