UCSD researchers derive lessons about human evolution from chicken genome
...we already have to provide us with a great deal of fresh
insight into the human genome." The chicken genome is the first for a non-mammal vertebrate that is close enough to mammals to make comparison possible. The analysis also affords a much longer view of evolution: the common vertebrate ancestor of mamm...
