I was blogging recently about a study on the evolution of the Gorilla and its ancestral relationship to the other great apes. Now, the circle on the sequencing of the great apes closes with a new study published today in Nature, which presents a genome-wide sequence of the Bonobo, contrasted with the chimpanzee and the human genome. As the previous study, it’s open access, so read for yourself!
