Organism ImageGorilla gorilla (western gorilla)

Shares a recent common ancestry with chimpanzees and humans.

Lineage: Eukaryota[14920]; Metazoa[7467]; Chordata[3462]; Craniata[3428]; Vertebrata[3428]; Euteleostomi[3385]; Mammalia[869]; Eutheria[695]; Euarchontoglires[337]; Primates[190]; Haplorrhini[138]; Catarrhini[64]; Hominidae[7]; Gorilla[2]; Gorilla gorilla[1]
Gorillas diverged from the human lineage one to two million years before chimpanzees and humans diverged from one another and, within approximately the past two million years, gorillas further speciated into western (Gorilla gorilla) and eastern (Gorilla beringei) gorilla species. The genome sequence of the gorilla will enable scientists More...
