more on copy-number variations in chimps & humans

A little while ago now I wrote about the creationist take on a recent paper looking at chimp/human genetics – more specifically, copy-number variations in particular gene sequences. I intended to read the original paper & blog about it, because the Sensuous Curmudgeon made it sound so interesting. So you may imagine that I was just a tad annoyed to find that my institution doesn’t have a subscription to that particular journal. (Not really surprising – there are an awful lot of journals out there & no one institution can possibly subscribe to the whole lot.)

But today I was pleasantly surprised to see that PZ Myers has done his usual good job on just that paper, over at Pharyngula. Thus both educating me & saving my bacon – pop across & read it 🙂
