You are given molecular sequence data for the GULO psedogene from four species of primates: Pan troglodytes (common chimpanzee, abbreviated Pt below), pongo pygmaeus (Bornean orangutan, Pp), homo sapiens (human, Hs) and Macaca fascicularis (crab--- eating macaque).
The traditional classifications scheme of primates placed orangutans and chimps together in one clade called Pongidae, and humans in a different clade, Hominidae. Is the traditional classification scheme supported by your molecular phylogeny?
