Phylogenetics Exercise 2

 

For this assignment you will construct parsimonious phylogenies for two sets of DNA data. You may work alone or in pairs. A team may turn in a joint exercise for a joint grade.

For each of the  data sets on the next page, draw a cladogram. Use parsimony as the criterion  for constructing the tree. Map the synapomorphies on the tree as in the following example, where the number refers to the location of a base in the sequence.
