The genetic code

Postby RL543 » Thu May 26, 2005 2:42 pm

By comparing proteins and hybridization of nucleic acids, you can discover the evolution connections between groups, and estimate when they were segregated from their same ancient 'father'. Comparing DNA sequences can make the process even more precise.
Why does this way (the genetic code etc.) defines more precisely the mutations, their rate and rhythm and the biochemical connection between different creatures?

Please expond on your question... I do not understand what you mean...
