Question: an evolutionary tree is shown below similar genes are represented...

Question details

An evolutionary tree is shown below. Similar genes are represented by boxes. The letters X, Y, and Z represent different species. Similarly colored genes designate genes present in the same species. Use the hypothetical evolutionary tree below to answer the following three questions.

ancestral gene Map speciation 1 Similarly colored genes designate genes present in the same species (species X, Y, or duplication 1 .For example, the pink Z genes- Za, Zpi, and 232- are present in species speciation 2 duplication 2 Ya (a) Which genes are homologs? Ya and Zß1 YB ZB1 (b) Which genes are orthologs?(c) Which genes are paralogs? Za and Zß2 X and Υα Ya and Zß X and Zp YBand Zß2 Ζβι and ZB2 Ya and YP ZB and Zß2 Υα and Υβ Y α and Y β Za and Zß Ζβι and ZB2 Υα and Ζα Za and Zß2 Υα and X
