ICR Bio-Origins Research: TREE
What do recent data imply about the evolutionary tree of life?
The evolutionary “tree of life” is an icon of Darwin’s thesis, yet recent studies have prompted some evolutionists to admit that this paradigm no longer fits the data. How badly do the data contradict the evolutionary tree of life? How much discontinuity (which Genesis 1 predicts) is actually present when species are compared on the molecular level? This project seeks to answer these questions by re-analyzing the molecular sequence data present in the public databases and by obtaining new DNA sequence data for further species-to-species comparisons.
