    The genome of the evolutionary ancestor of humans and present-day apes underwent a burst of activity in duplicating segments of DNA, MB2-632 exam according to a study to be published in Nature Feb 12, the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birthday.”The new study shows big differences in the genomes of humans and great apes within duplicated sequences containing rapidly evolving genes. Most of these differences occurred at a time just prior to the speciation of chimpanzee, gorilla, and humans,” said researchers Tomas Marques-Bonet and Jeffrey M. Kidd who headed the study. Both are fellows in the lab of Evan Eichler, UW professor of genome sciences, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator and senior author of the paper.”It is unclear why, but 1Y0-A08 exam the common ancestor of humans, chimps and gorillas had an unusual activity of duplication,” Kidd added. “Moreover, we don’t yet know the functions of most of the genes that were affected by these duplications.”The great ape ancestors, from whom humans, gorillas and chimps descended, lived in Africa between 8 646-563 exam million and 12 million years ago. Most scientists think that the lineage that eventually led to chimps and humans diverged from the African great ape ancestors about 5 million to 7 million years ago.
