Sequencing and analysis of gibbon genome sheds light on its complex evolution and the role of repeats in chromosomal rearrangements

Researchers from IBE and CNAG participate in an international consortium to decipher the gibbon genome, which will provide clues for human health research.
"This is the last ape to be sequenced and the end of an era in human comparative genomics," said Tomas Marques-Bonet. "Now we have tools - the genomes - for all the closest species to humans."
