Latest Chimpanzee genome project Stories
A new study compares the relative rate of molecular evolution between humans and chimps with that of their lice.
For the first time, scientists have taken stem cells from chimpanzees and bonobos and turned them into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and their work has helped to highlight some of the differences between humans and great apes.
Researchers have designed a method that can universally test for evolutionary adaption, or positive (Darwinian) selection, in any chosen set of genes, using re-sequencing data such as that generated by the 1000 Genomes Project.
The human brain is the center of the human nervous system and has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but it’s than expected.
Can the song of a small bird provide valuable insights into human stuttering and speech-related disorders and conditions, including autism and stroke?
Genetic mutations that boost an individual’s adaptability have greater chances of getting through to X chromosomes – at least in chimpanzees, according to new Danish research.
An important part of saving a species is often understanding its DNA.
Scientists have analyzed the genomes of humans and closely related primates and discovered over 500 regulatory regions that chimpanzees and mammals have that humans do not.
Humans are clearly different from chimpanzees.
Jumping Elements, Some of Which Cause Genetic Diseases, Become Incorporated in the Genome at Different Stages of Human Development.
