A fine-scale chimpanzee genetic map from population sequencing

Science

Abstract

To study the evolution of recombination rates in apes, we developed methodology to construct a fine-scale genetic map from high-throughput sequence data from 10 Western chimpanzees, Pan troglodytes verus. Compared to the human genetic map, broad-scale recombination rates tend to be cons...read more

CpG Sites

CpG sites are genomic loci where cytosine is followed by a guanine along its 5’ to 3’ direction. CpG sites are common in CpG islands and its methylation has been implicated in cancer, aging, and gene silencing. Here is the latest research.
