DNA hybridization evidence and phylogeny

How well has the genetic similarity between humans and chimpanzees been
documented? Back in 1987 a famous study was done that demonstrated a
close genetic similarity (DNA hybridization evidence of hominoid
phylogeny ;
Sibley and Ahlquist, 1987, J. Molec. Evol. 26:99-121) but the accuracy
of this
study has been questioned.
Can anybody cite studies that have reinforced the results of the above
study
and been accepted as accurate by most biologists?
Thanks!
