The Genetic Basis for Common Food Allergies Kyle Benzle The Ohio State University, Columbus Ohio Summary The following will be a surface analysis of the similarities and opposing differences, both genotypically and phenotypically in Bonobo chimpanzees, and Humans. It appears that Humans parted genetic ways with our common ancestors about 5 million years ago. Since this time Humans have made some seemingly amazing advances, while our closest living relative appears to continue to be relegated to where and how we have decides to allow them to live. According to Linda Vigilant, of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, there is an "insanely large amount[] of data" already and being created through various studies involving the three ape species. Data telling us the we range in the high 98 percentile of genetic identicality, but these number can be made to appear deceiving, as all genetic material is far from equal. A human could be made with around 50% of the DNA we really have, and it is in this DNA
