A genomic region evolving toward different GC contents in humans and chimpanzees indicates a recent and regionally limited shift in the mutation pattern.


DNA sequences evolving differently in the human and chimpanzee genomes signal recent and regionally limited changes in the process of DNA sequence evolution. Here we present the comparison of 90 kb from the nonrecombining part of the human Y chromosome to the corresponding part of the chimpanzee genome using gorilla as out-group. Our results reveal a… (More)
