Molecular Phylogenetic Analyses and Real-Life Data
May/June 2005 (vol. 7 no. 3)
pp. 86-91
Kerstin Hoef-Emden, University of Cologne, Germany
All life existing on Earth today probably shares a common ancestry that goes back billions of years. This unknown common ancestor most likely passed on a set of indispensable genes necessary for maintaining basic cell functions to its extant descendants via asexual or sexual reproduction, but during the course of evolution, these genes, the numbers of them, their functions, and the sizes of their genomes changed.
