Can you please show how to construct a phylogenetic tree using the number of differences in the sequence between each species?

Hi there! We likely will not be reviewing phylogenetic tree construction because it will not be tested on the exam this year. For future, if two organisms have a low number of differences, that means they share a more recent common ancestor and will be closer together on the tree.
