More 'than three per cent of the human genome is more closely related to either the bonobo or the chimpanzee genome than these are to each other,' a study concluded.
The study concludes that Europeans have a low X/A ratio relative to Africans due to migration and subsequent mutations.
The X/A ratios for Ulindi (bonobo), an African human and a European human were inferred from heterozygosity, and that for the Pan ancestor was inferred from ILS. The low X/A ratio for the European has been suggested to be due to demographic effects connected to migrating out of Africa30. Errors, 95% confidence interval.
