Scientists produce genetic map of chimpanzees to fight trafficking

Scientists have now mapped the genomes of 828 wild chimpanzees from across Africa, using new sequencing techniques. Scientists have produced the first genetic map of chimpanzees in the wild, providing a detailed reconstruction of the endangered species’ past migrations, and a new tool to combat illegal trafficking. The genomic catalog, which includes 828 individuals from …
