Life Code of Chimps Laid Bare

Life Code of Chimps Laid BareQuote:The genetic code of our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, has been sequenced and analysed by an international team of researchers. The scientists say the information is a milestone in the quest to discover what sets us apart from other animals. A comparison shows chimps and humans to be almost 99% identical in the most important areas of their "life codes". The team tells Nature magazine that future research will tease out the significance of the few differences. Mr. P. The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.The pain in hell has two sides.

The following is a quote from that article(Life Code of Chimps Laid Bare). "The researchers hope that by elaborating those few points of separation, they will also increase pressure to save chimpanzees and other great apes in the wild."I hope so, too! I also hope that the pressure will come on quickly, before it's too late.
