Humans and Other Primates -- 22 Genes is the Difference

UPI reports: German scientists have narrowed the search for the tiny genetic differences separating humans from other primates to a specific collection of 22 genes.

Researchers at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg used a trick of evolution, the duplication of genes, to help narrow the search for those differences. Read the rest here
