Does anybody know if homologous coding sequences (any gene) are known
for the pygmy chimpanzee (Pan paniscus, bonobo), common chimpanzee (pan
troglodytes) and homo sapiens ?
I sequenced three homologous viral sequences from these three species, and
would like to compare the divergence between the viral genes and the
divergence between somatic genes.
There is a recent paper by Horai et al. (J Mol Evol, 1992 35:32-43) that
compares mitochondrial DNA, but I would like to concentrate at coding
Thank you for your help !
