Insight into human-chimp differences
New York Times,
April 12, Pg. 18 – By using gene expression chips to measure the gene activity of the chimp and human brain, a team of European and American researchers including UCSD professor of medicine and study co-author Ajit Varki concluded that the striking difference between these primate cousins is most evident in their brains.  The disparity appears to be the result of evolutionary differences in gene and protein expression. (Elaine Muchmore, M.D., a hematologist and genetic researcher with VA San Diego Healthcare System and a UCSD professor of medicine is also a co-author of the study).
