Molecular evolution is a theory, stating that any time of divergence between genes, proteins, or lineages can be dated simply by measuring the number of changes between sequences. Molecular evolution emerged in the 1960s as researchers sought to understand discoveries surrounding the evolutionary patterns, structure and function of nucleic acids and protein as well as the use of these molecules in studies of phylogenetics, population genetics, biogeography, and other areas of research and at different levels of biological organization.
