Human and Chimp Genetic Similarities

Out of the many topics covered over this course, one that peaked my interest the most was the similarities between the human genetic makeup and a chimps.  This prompted me to do a little extra research on the topic.  I found this article which states that human and chimps are slightly further apart than the typical 1%-2% people are familiar with.  The article also states that the difference is closer to 6% and explains the reasoning behind it.  This ties into the course very nicely and may shed a little bit more insight as to how long ago it was that humans and chimps were considered the same species.  Overall I felt this article was informative but at the same time very clear and concise.
