Role of molecular biology in evolutionary classification
They found that 99.7% of the DNA was similar to that of modern-day human beings- Homo sapien sapien. This is clear evidence that human beings gradually evolved from the Neanderthal and the differences that exist are a result of evolutionary processes. The 0.3% difference in DNA between the Neanderthal and the modern humans was attributed to some of the unique genes identified, such as the MC1R gene that coded for light skin and brown hair (Mathov & Carmel, 2019). The CRISPR-Cas system has significantly increased recently, indicating continuing evolutionary evidence among organisms. DNA technology has a significant role to play in determining these changes as they occur in the future and could help us determine the extent to which evolution has occurred in living organisms and their evolutionary differences.
