what kind of project would you devise?

Fellow researchers:

If you were able to obtain the complete DNA sequence for a particular gene
in a number of different species, all within the same order, what kind of
questions might you seek to answer?

Aren't phylogenetic considerations out of the question since the best you
could get would be a gene tree rather than a species tree?

Do people ever publish papers where they just discuss the conserved motifs
of proteins across different genera? What category of science is that
exactly, anyway?
