Never Enough Chimp Promotions Department

According to a new study of "functionally important" DNA--that is, DNA that codes for proteins which can modify amino acids in the body--at 99.4% similarity to human DNA, chimpanzees are even more closely related to humans than previously thought, and should therefore be moved to the genus homo. Yes, this incluses bonobos.

They didn't mention anything about YETI DNA, however. I guess science still has a ways to go....
