Molecular Phylogenetics

The Tree of life image that appeared in Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection, 1859. This is the only figure in On the Origin of Species.

dna mutation
DNA Mutation
  • A change in the nucleotide sequence of the genetic material of an organism
  • Create variation in the gene pool upon which natural selection can act
  • Only germ line mutations can be passed on to descendants
causes of dna mutations
Causes of DNA Mutations
  • Replication errors
  • Chemical mutagens
  • Ionizing Radiation
  • UV Radiation

Deletion

Insertion

Do you think point mutations or insertions/deletions have greater effects?

mutation rates
Mutation Rates
  • Eukaryotes: 10-4 to 10-6 mutations per base pair per generation
  • Bacteria: 10-8 mutations per base pair per generation
  • Human genome size: 3 billion base pairs
  • Bacteria: 0.5-10 million base pairs

Do you think most mutations are harmful? Beneficial?
