Reflection Questions:
Summarize your amino acid comparison in paragraph form. To guide your summary,
reflect on the following questions. 

What
does it mean when scientists say that living organisms share a universal
genetic code? What it means when scientists say that living organisms
share a universal genetic code, they mean that each and every organism
shares the same amount of amino acids assigned to our DNA.
How
does a universal genetic code relate to the hypotheses about the origin of
life on Earth? A universal genetic code relate to the hypotheses about the
origin of life on Earth by saying that no matter the majority of different
physical organisms, they’re all equally built in the same connection to be
in the same division of a genetic code.

Based
on the amino acid sequence data for the Cytochome-C protein, chimpanzees
and humans share an identical coding sequence. What other species
identified on the chart has a coding sequence that is most closely related
to the humans and chimpanzees and most distantly related? Other species
that are identified on the chart has a coding sequence that is most
closely related to the humans and chimpanzees and most distantly related
are Peking Ducks.
