Brief Overview:

Using a common structural motif found in diverse proteins that interact with DNA (such as transcription factors restriction enzymes, and topoisomerases), we explored evolution over taxa for a particular HtH domain-containing protein using CLUSTALW and Phylip. We also explored evolutionary utilization of this motif by different enzymes using BLAST, CLUSTALW, and Domain searches.
