Reich 441, 1103–1108 (2006)10.1038/nature04789; Patterson et al. replyGenetic data from two or more species provide information about the process of speciation. In their analysis of DNA from humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and macaques (HCGOM), Patterson et al. suggest that the apparently short divergence time between humans and chimpanzees on the X chromosome is explained by a massive interspecific hybridization… CONTINUE READING
