25 similarity, where evolutionary distance is infinite. This makes sense; for two sequences that are very similar, the probable frequency of more than one change at a single site is low, requiring only a small correction, whereas two sequences that have changed beyond all recognition (infinite evolutionary distance) are still approximately 25% similar just because there are only four bases and so approximately one of the four will match entirely by chance. 1 The Jukes and Cantor equation plotted as observed sequence similarity (from the similarity matrix) versus estimated evolutionary distance.
Archaeal species had previously been scattered haphazardly among whatever bacteria they superficially resembled. Indeed, in terms of superficial phenotype, the Archaea are generally similar to the Bacteria, but biochemically they are just as similar to the Eukarya, and in evolutionary terms they form a distinct group that is probably more closely related to the Eukarya than to the Bacteria. The Archaea as a group have changed less since their common ancestry than either the Bacteria or Eukarya (they are primitive), and so they more closely resemble our common ancestry.
Molecular phylogenetic trees depict the relationships between gene sequences The final step in the tree-building process is the leap of faith that the tree depicting the relationships between the sequence similarities in an alignment also depicts the evolutionary history of the organisms from which the sequences were derived. You can go wrong for many reasons at this step. The most common reason is the choice of sequence for use in the analysis, the first step of the whole process.
