Summary

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND-- New research reported here last week at the American Society for Human Genetics meeting suggests that the DNA of humans and chimps might not be quite as similar as researchers have believed it to be for the last 30 years. A closer look has uncovered nips and tucks in homologous sections of DNA that weren't noticed in previous studies.
