Genome Solver modules were combined to make one project for students using tools within NCBI BLAST to explore phylogenetics and horizontal gene transfer from phage to Chlamydia.

Phylogenetics is the study of evolutionary relationships.  Using DNA or protein sequence data from different species, it is possible to identify potential relationships among these.  This project uses BLAST to compare the presence and similarity of three genes among Chlamydia species and determine their likely evolutionary origin from the trees obtained. For this lesson, the materials include a slide deck and an exercise including answer key.
