Humans and Chimps: Close But Not That Close

Science & Technology at Scientific American.com: Humans and Chimps: Close But Not That Close — There’s a bigger genetic jump between humans and chimps than previously believed

by JR Minkel: “A lot more genes may separate humans from their chimp relatives than earlier studies let on. Researchers studying changes in the number of copies of genes in the two species found that their mix of genes is only 94 percent identical. The 6 percent difference is considerably larger than the commonly cited figure of 1.5 percent.”

Interesting… even when the article has a strong evolution doctrine bias.
