This full annotation run includes the following assembly(ies):

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 important insights into cognition, AIDs, hepatitis, diabetes, and other diseases.

The genome sequence of the chimpanzee provides an important resource for comparative sequence analysis. Differences between chimpanzee and human genomes will help define the genetic basis of traits that distinguish the human species from other primates. The Pan troglodytes diploid genome is organized in 23 pairs of autosomes and two sex chromosomes.

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the genome assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include annotated genes and transcripts, Gnomon-predicted gene and transcript models, aligned transcript and genomic sequences, RefSeq scaffolds (the 'Contig' map), the assembly tiling path (the 'Component' map), and more. For some species, additional non-sequence maps such as Genetic maps, Radiation hybrid maps, and others may be available.
