Pan troglodytes, or chimpanzee, is a primate very closely related to humans. The chimpanzee and other apes are most closely related to humans, followed by Old World monkeys; including the rhesus macaque and baboon. The chimpanzee is an important model to study biology, disease, and evolution. Research with Pan troglodytes has provided More...
