Big differences in duplicated DNA distinguish chimp and human genomes

...ed in human developmental disorders such as spinal muscular atrophy and Prader-Willi syndrome. Parts of those duplicated segments have only single copies in the chimp genome, and it is possible that the chimpanzee is therefore not predisposed to the same diseases as a human.

Researchers feed tiny pills of RNA to planarians to identify genes essential for regeneration

... diseases, such as ataxia (inability to coordinate muscular movements), bradyopsia (slow vision), and cancer. Only eight of those genes have a corresponding knockout gene in mice. This means researchers may be able to use planarians to learn about human diseases that can't be studied in other animal models. ...
