Question description

When humans ventured out of Africa over 60,000 years ago they left genetic footprints that are still visible today. When living things die, their DNA stays with them and does not disappear immediately, which allows it to degrade over time. When it comes to learning the DNA of our ancestors it can still be found on fossils or even their skeleton remains. By finding their DNA it would have to be broken down into small pieces for modern sequencing technology. When living things die, their DNA doesn’t disappear immediately; it slowly degrades over time. This means that the DNA of long dead people can still be found in fossils and skeletons, but it will be have been broken down into small pieces, perfect for modern sequencing technologies.

By measuring our genetics and comparing our DNA sequence to a chimp , our closest great ape relative on an average we find at least 20 spelling differences every 1000 letters, see the images below

I included the text of the word file in case you're not able to edit your header. If you need a title page, please ask. 😁 The Conclusive Evidence of Human DNA and Ancestry to Chimpanzees Human DNA is exceptionally closely related to DNA of chimps, providing a gateway to the lifelong mystery of human genetics. Charles Darwin initially gave the blueprint to evolution in 1871, predicting the origin of the human being connected to apes; however, the conclusive evidence advances into more than a simple prognostication. A study conducted in 2011 comparing the human genome to the chimpanzee genome concluded that, "96% of DNA base pair sequencesof humans and chimpanzees are the same" ("Humans,"n.d., para. 2) The evidence of the similarity between humans and chimp's sheds light on wher...
