Scientists sequence genome of human relative that prefers love over war

, : Scientists sequence genome of human relative that prefers love over war.

An international team of scientists has sequenced the genome of the bonobo, a primate that, along with chimpanzees, is the closest living relative of humans. Unlike chimpanzees, which are aggressive, bonobos tend to be peaceful, playful and highly sexual. The study, published in Nature, compares the bonobo genome to the genomes of chimpanzees and humans. The findings should help scientists understand the similarities and differences among the three primates.
