...Susan Offner The beta hemoglobin protein is identical in humans and chimpanzees. In this tutorial, students see that even though the proteins are identical, the genes that code for them are not. There are many more differences in the introns than in the exons, which indicates that coding regions of...

...Larry Flammer Students compare banding patterns on hominid chromosomes and see striking evidence of their common ancestry. To test this, human chromosome no. 2 is matched with two shorter chimpanzee chromosomes, leading to the hypothesis that human chromosome 2 resulted from the fusion of the two...

... studies were done on macaques, grivets, and chimpanzees. Indeed, they proved pivotal to the conclusions. But such use of research animals is now deemed unacceptable, as the disease did not threaten these species and the research could not possibly benefit them. Of course, ethics change. At the time, such...
