Ape Humans? Alterations in Proteins Affects Genes.

Did you know that the genetic code of chimpanzees is so much alike the code of humans, almost a 98% similarity, and perhaps that explains why they ‘ape’ us. And yet, // there are glaring differences, despite the 98% similarity, that make us humans. According to scientists, it was not a different set...
