The theory of evolution maintains that all living things are related and share a common genetic code. The mechanisms of gene structure and expression are conserved across all taxonomic domains. All organisms contain DNA and RNA and use these molecules to code for proteins.

Which of the following experiments could provide​ evidence that all living things share a common genetic code?


​Engineer a plant to express a desired trait using genes from its own genome.


Insert ATP produced in a bacterial cell into a mammalian cell.


Perform a bacterial transformation using a plasmid containing a Eukaryote gene.


Replace a hox gene of a vertebrate with a hox gene of an invertebrate.
