BLAST 1 1. What species in the BLAST result has the most similar gene sequence to the gene of interest? Gallus gallus collagen, type V, alpha 1 (COL5A1), mRNA (It is a chicken) 2. Where is that species located on your cladogram? The species is located on the far bottom of the cladogram. It is also labeled green (for bird). 3. How similar is that is that gene sequence? The gene is 100% similar to the gene in the sequence. 4. What species has the next most similar gene sequence to the gene of interest? The Meleagris gallavo collagen alpha-1 (V) is the most similar gene sequence to the gene of interest. BLAST 2 1. What species in the BLAST result has the most similar gene sequence to the gene of interest? Drosophila melanogaster FI02063 full insert cDNA (flies) has the most similar gene. 2. Where is that species located on your cladogram? It is on the bottom of the cladogram (kind of) 3. How similar is that is that gene sequence? It is 100% similar to that gene sequence. 4. What species has the next most similar gene sequence to the gene of interest?
