DNA that showed the most changes between human and chimp genomes. The computers identified 49 such areas in the human genome, dubbed human accelerated regions (HAR). The most radical revolutionary, tagged as HAR1,
The DNA sequences of humans and chimpanzees are 98 percent identical. Yet that 2 percent difference represents at least 15 million changes in our genome since the time of our common ancestor roughly six million years ago. Now a new computational technique has identified 49 regions that have changed particularly quickly between humans and chimps, and may have revealed at least one gene critical to the development of our larger brains.

Where do you draw the line there between ape and human? Also, doesn't this sort of dispel the 'no missing links' thing?
And for those of you who are more familiar, I know this is far from complete or modern. More skulls have been found and the data set has grown. This is far from the end-all on ape-human transition.
