Your question is in the same family as my question of how to distinguish between an uncatalogued protein coding sequence and the same sequence with one disabling point mutation. No fair doing it with chemistry. That would be what natural selection does.
Or my related question of how you know how many mutations it takes to go from a barely active sequence for a catalyst to a highly adapted sequence. How does gpuccio know it exceeds the bounds of probability or involves multiple co-dependent mutations?
