Sommario:
Genome mapping has revealed that the human and chimpanzee genetic codes differ by a mere 1.6%. But whilst a fierce international race is on to identify this crucial handful of genes, the key question is this: what does that 1.6% difference really mean? And is that the only, or even the right way to measure difference? In this book, Jeremy Taylor explains the latest findings, and shows that the effect of that small  Per saperne di più…

Abstract:

Are chimps almost human? Are we just smarter chimps? What does that oft-quoted 1.6% difference in DNA actually mean? As teams worldwide seek the genetic basis of our humanity, a complex picture is  Per saperne di più…

Not so fast on the chimps-are-human-too hypothesis

da vleighton (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2013-08-05) Molto buono Link permanente

  This book has two main divisions with an overarching theme, so it is a little confusing. Both support the overall thesis, which is: chimps may be the closest living relatives to humans, but humans are still very different from them physiologically and behaviorally. I give the book four stars...
