The structural microheterogeneity evident between the human and chimpanzee genomes is quite considerable and includes inversions and duplications as well as deletions, ranging in size from a few base-pairs up to several megabases (Mb). Insertions and deletions have together given rise to at least 150 Mb of genomic DNA sequence that is either present or absent in humans as compared to chimpanzees. Such regions often contain paralogous sequences and members of multigene families thereby ensuring… Expand
Chromosomal rearrangements in the human and chimpanzee lineages
TLDR
Among the structural differences evident between humans and chimpanzees are large chromosomal rearrangements which are visible by cytogenetic analysis, and copy number differences appear to have given rise to several hundred megabases of genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequence that are either present or absent in humans as compared to chimpanzees.

Divergence between the Human and Chimpanzee Genomes and its Impact on Protein and Transcriptome Evolution
TLDR
Comparison of the human and chimpanzee genome has revealed a broad spectrum of genetic differences, but it is difficult to distinguish the neutral from the functionally meaningful changes that have occurred in both primate genomes since divergence from their common ancestor. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of chromosomal rearrangement during primate evolution
TLDR
Since many primate-specific breakpoints map to regions lacking SDs, but containing interspersed high-copy repetitive sequence elements such as SINEs, LINEs, LTRs, α-satellites and (AT)n repeats, it is inferred that a range of different molecular mechanisms have probably been involved in promoting chromosomal breakage during the evolution of primate genomes.

Comparative analysis of copy number variation in primate genomes
TLDR
This study reinvestigated the data originally obtained by Perry et al. (2006) relating to chimpanzee CNVs and identified 24 genomic regions with the potential to be chimpanzee-specific CNVs, but surmise that lineage- specific CNVs are not abundant in the chimpanzee. Expand
Nucleotide Sequence Divergence between Humans and Chimpanzees
TLDR
It is demonstrated that nonsubstitution variations greatly increase the complexity and play a critical role in human–chimpanzee genome evolution. Expand
The origins and impact of primate segmental duplications.
TLDR
This review focuses on the mechanistic origin and impact of this difference with respect to evolution, genetic diversity and primate phenotype within humans and great apes. Expand
Origins and Impacts of Primate Segmental Duplications
Duplicated sequences are substrates for the emergence of new genes and are an important source of genetic instability associated with rare and common disease. Analyses of primate genomes have shownExpand
Comparing the Human and Chimpanzee Genomes
TLDR
Whole-genome sequences now available for both human and common chimpanzee confirm their close genetic relationship, whereas also identifying differences that may have contributed to the emergence of species-specific phenotypes are identified. Expand
Abundance of ultramicro inversions within local alignments between human and chimpanzee genomes
TLDR
The observations suggest that ultramicro inversions are abundant among the human and chimpanzee genomes, and that location of the inversions correlated with the genome structural instability. Expand
Adaptive evolution of UGT2B17 copy-number variation.
TLDR
Diversity was unusually high and the time to the most recent common ancestor was estimated at approximately 2.4 or approximately 3.0 million years by two different methods, with evidence of balancing selection in Europe and East Asia. Expand

A genome-wide survey of structural variation between human and chimpanzee.
TLDR
This analysis expands the number of potential rearrangements between chimpanzees and humans 50-fold and prioritizes regions for further finishing in the chimpanzee genome and provides a resource for interrogating functional differences between humans and chimpanzees. Expand
Discovery of Human Inversion Polymorphisms by Comparative Analysis of Human and Chimpanzee DNA Sequence Assemblies
TLDR
The results suggest that inversions are an important source of variation in primate genome evolution and the finding of at least three novel inversion polymorphisms in humans indicates this type of structural variation may be a more common feature of the authors' genome than previously realized.

TLDR
Genomic rearrangements, including insertions, deletions, translocations and duplications, have long been recognized as potentially important sources of novel genomic material and are known to account for major genomic differences between humans and chimpanzees. Expand
A genome-wide comparison of recent chimpanzee and human segmental duplications
TLDR
It is determined that 33% of human duplications are not duplicated in chimpanzee, including some human disease-causing duplications, and that de novo duplication has contributed most significantly to differences between the species, followed by deletion of ancestral duplications. Expand
DNA sequence and comparative analysis of chimpanzee chromosome 22
TLDR
The high-quality DNA sequence of 33.3 megabases of chimpanzee chromosome 22 is reported, finding that 1.44% of the chromosome consists of single-base substitutions in addition to nearly 68,000 insertions or deletions, sufficient to generate changes in most of the proteins. Expand
Recently mobilized transposons in the human and chimpanzee genomes.
TLDR
Almost 11,000 transposon copies that are differentially present in the human and chimpanzee genomes are identified and represent a form of species-specific genetic variation that may have contributed to the differential evolution of humans and chimpanzees. Expand
Initial sequence of the chimpanzee genome and comparison with the human genome
TLDR
It is found that the patterns of evolution in human and chimpanzee protein-coding genes are highly correlated and dominated by the fixation of neutral and slightly deleterious alleles. Expand
Duplication and positive selection among hominin-specific PRAME genes
TLDR
It is predicted that PRAME genes evolved adaptively due to strong competition between rapidly-dividing cells during spermatogenesis and oogenesis, and it is suggested that as PRAME gene copy number is polymorphic among individuals, positive selection of PRAME alleles may still prevail within the human population. Expand
Molecular characterisation of the pericentric inversion that distinguishes human chromosome 5 from the homologous chimpanzee chromosome
TLDR
The clustering of evolutionary breakpoints within this chromosomal region, together with the presence of multiple pathological breakpoints in the vicinity of both 5p15 and 5q15, is consistent with the non-random model of chromosomal evolution and suggests that these regions may well possess intrinsic features that have served to mediate a variety of genomic rearrangements, including the pericentric inversion in chimpanzee chromosome 4. Expand
Polymorphic micro-inversions contribute to the genomic variability of humans and chimpanzees
TLDR
It is concluded that micro-inversions make a significant contribution to genomic variability in both humans and chimpanzees and inversion polymorphisms may be more frequent than previously realized. Expand
