http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/20070417/sc_livescience/chimpsmoreevolvedthanhumans;_ylt=Av39wEF.n4a3Z0zBonowr78PLBIF Since the human-chimp split about 6 million years ago, chimpanzee genes can be said to have evolved more than human genes, a new study suggests. The results, detailed online this week in the Proceedings of the large brains, cognitive abilities and bi-pedalism. Jianzhi Zhang of the University of Michigan and his colleagues analyzed strings of DNA from nearly 14,000 protein-coding genes shared by chimps and humans. They looked for differences gene by gene and whether they caused changes in the generated proteins.
