Default Manpanzee impossible


from a yahoogroup

Dr. Barney Maddox, the leading genetic genome researcher, said, concerning these genetic differences, "NOW THE GENETIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HUMAN AND HIS NEAREST RELATIVE, THE CHIMPANZEE, IS AT LEAST 1.6 PERCENT. THAT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE MUCH, BUT CALCULATED OUT, THAT IS A GAP OF AT LEAST 48,000,000 NUCLEOTIDES, AND A CHANGE OF ONLY 3 NUCLEOTIDES IS FATAL TO AN ANIMAL; THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY OF CHANGE.


HUMAN-CHIMP DNA DIFFERENCE TREBLED- SEPT 23RD-2002. NEWSCIENTIST.COM NEWS SERVICE:

We are more unique than previously thought, according to new comparisons of human and chimpanzee DNA. It has long been held that we share 98.5 percent of our genetic material with our closest relatives. That now appears to be wrong. IN FACT, WE SHARE LESS THAN 95 PERCENT OF OUR GENETIC MATERIAL, A THREE FOLD INCREASE IN THE VARIATION BETWEEN US AND CHIMPS. The new value came to light when roy Britten of the California Institute of Technology became suspicous about the 98.5 percent figure. Ironically, that number was originally derived from a technique that Britten himself developed decades ago at Caltech with colleague Dave Kohne. BY MEASURING THE TEMPERATURE AT WHICH MATCHING DNA OF TWO SPECIES COMES APART, YOU CAN WORK OUT HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE. But the technique only picks up a particular type of variation called a single base substitution. These occur whenever a single "letter" differs in corresponding strands of DNA from two species. But there are other major types of variation that the previous ****yses ignored. "Insertions" occur whenever a whole section of DNA appears in one species but not in the corresponding strand of the other. Likewise, "deletions" mean that a piece of DNA is missing from one species. Together, they are termed "indels" and Britten seized his chance to evaluate the true variation between the two species when stretches of chimp DNA were published on the internet by teams from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and from the University of Oklahoma. When Britten compared five stretches of chimp DNA with the corresponding pieces of human DNA, he found that single base substitutions accounted for a difference of 1.4 percent, very close to the expected figure. But he also found that the DNA of both species was littered with indels. His comparisons revealed that they add around 4.0 percent to the genetic differences. "We're not any more different than we were, says Britten, "But we see a bit more divergence than before because insertions and deletions are taken into account". "It almost triples the difference". THE RESULT IS ONLY BASED ON ABOUT ONE MILLION DNA BASES OUT OF THE THREE BILLION WHICH MAKE UP THE HUMAN AND CHIMP GENOMES, says Britten. "It's just a glance, he says. But the differences were equally split between "junk" regions that do not have any genes, and gene-rich parts of the genome. Britten thinks it will be some time before we know what it is about our genes that makes us so different from chimps. He thinks the real secrets could lie in "regulatory" regions of DNA that control whole networks of genes. JOURNAL REFERENCE- PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES.

Dr. Barney Maddox holds a B.S. in biology from Texas Christian
University and an M.D. from UTSW Medical School in Dallas. His
residency in urology was done through the University of Missouri, and
he now is in private practice. In 1997 Dr. Maddox was a committee
member on the Texas State Schoolbook Panel, for biology.

He's a "leading genetic genome researcher?" with only a BS in biology?
Yeah suuuure!

## The ICR believes in the Bible! Especially in Job 13:7

So does that make you Monkeys uncle then??

Then we are all dead. You are a mutant 50 to 100 times over.

This came out some time back. It a case of measuring the difference a
different way. You are still an ape.
Suggested reading for those who are just finding out they are apes:
