Vores evolution går cirka en tredjedel langsommere end hos de andre primater. I et nyt studie har danske forskere nemlig fundet frem til, at mennesket har langt færre DNA-mutationer, end vores nærmeste nulevende slægtninge: De store menneskeaber.
Researchers from Aarhus University and Copenhagen Zoo have discovered that the human mutation rate is significantly slower than for our closest primate relatives. The new knowledge may be important for estimates of when the common ancestor for humans and chimpanzees lived - and for conservation of large primates in the wild.
Nature Genetics, Dec 2018: Doug Speed from BiRC, together with David Balding, University of Melbourne, have created SumHer, a new software for analyzing results from genetic association studies.
