Resumo:
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  Ler mais...

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

por vleighton (Usuário WorldCat publicado 2013-08-05) Muito Bom Permalink
