Chimps and Humans DNA Differences

Published onsdag 22 november 2006 kl 11.45
Distant relatives

New Swedish research indicates that humans and chimpanzees may not be as closely related as previously thought.

Earlier studies have shown that DNA sequences between the two species were 98.5 percent identical. But the new study, by researchers at Uppsala University, indicates the difference might be as great as 6.5 percent.

Their work is published in the November issue of the Journal of Molecular Evolution.
