Not a Chimp

Chimps are not us!
Not a Chimp: The hunt to find the genes that make us human is an exploration of why chimps and humans are far less similar than we have been led to believe. Genome mapping has revealed that the human and chimpanzee genetic codes differ by a mere 1.6%, but author Jeremy Taylor explains that the effects of seemingly small genetic difference are still vast. In the post below, he looks at cases of domesticated chimps turning on their owners and argues that humans must learn to keep chimpanzees at arms’ length, literally and intellectually.
