Chromosomal rearrangements and the genomic distribution of gene-expression divergence in humans and chimpanzees.

Abstract

The genomic DNA sequences of humans and chimpanzees differ by only 1.24%. Recently, however, substantial differences in gene-expression patterns between the two species have been revealed. In this article, we investigate the genomic distribution of such differences. Besides confirming previous findings about the evolution of sex chromosomes and duplications… (More)
