I have 3 questions...

Post by jem » Sat Nov 11, 2006 5:46 pm

I'm working on some homework here, it's a crossword puzzle. I have no idea about these. Here's the clues:

Comparative _______ studies the common structures found in organisms.
7 letters

Comparative ________ studies the development of related organisms.
10 letters

Comparative ________ studies different proteins in related organisms.
12 letters


Any help at all is appreciated. Even if you send me somewhere to look for the answer. Google is usually my friend, but it must be mad at me. :)

TIA,
Jem

None of those seem to work... Maybe the first one -homolog- fits letter wise but that would mean my other answer is wrong.

The other was: Any change in a gene that can be inherited...which is mutation. I hope.

But thanks though!
