Hi there everyone!
I am currently working on a paper in which I compare the histone H1 protein sequence of the polar bear and the house mouse, yet one major problem I am having is finding a suitable independent variable, i.e. my experiment is too simplistic. I would like to have something along the lines of the dependent variable being the sequence similarity calculated by a program like BLASTP, and so I was wondering if you all could give me any tips?
Right now I'm thinking along the lines of time since common ancestor divergence (meaning that I would probably add more species for different points of diversion in time), but I'm open for all ideas, options and suggestions!
Thanks in advance! Minas
