Answer to Question #16616 in Molecular Biology for Justin

Question #16616
You have the DNA base sequence of a particular gene from sweet pea and from species X and Y. A computer analysis reveals that species X has a 95% DNA sequence homology to the pea gene (5% of the bases in the species X gene sequence are different), while species Y has a 90% DNA sequence homology (10% of the bases in species Y gene sequence are different). Can you conclude that the protein in sweet pea is more similar in structure and function to that in species X than in species Y? Please explain the steps you take to solve and explain why
Expert's answer
We can conclude that the protein in sweet pea is more similar in structure and function to that in species X than in species Y. It could be proved further with the computer modeling of protein on account of aminoacid sequence.
