I'm wondering how I could approach this. I am doing an undergraduate bioinformatics class project where I want to test the following hypothesis "Protein homolog are conserved motifs that mediate transport and other functions" on APOE in different organisms.

I am thinking to compare the gene sequences between the species to examine their differences on a functional level. Is this the correct approach? I'm not sure how to execute this.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Are you sure you don't mean "Protein homologues HAVE conserved motifs that mediate transport and other functions"?
