Question: iii reconstruct a phylogenetic tree using the character state matrix...

Question details

III Reconstruct a phylogenetic tree using the character state matrix listed below. This data set will generate a tree, or trees, that may require a consensus tree. Taxon CharacterCharacter 2 Character 3 Character 4Character 5 0 0 A. Draw your phylogenetic tree(s) on the sheet provided. 1. Root the tree(s) under the assumption that Taxon O is the outgroup, and label the root. 2. Identify the most parsimonious tree(s) for the data set provided and explain why the tree(s) is/are the most parsimonious based on character optimization. 3. If multiple parsimonious trees are identified, compile a consensus tree.
