Statements along the lines that human and chimpanzee genes (DNA?) share over
90% sequence homology are commonly bandied about. Does this refer to gene
sequences or to total DNA (presumably from hybridisation kinetics)? If
anyone can provide references to original papers I would be grateful, as my
Boolian logic or the database indexing has not proved equal to the task.
