missing link found

ok, it's not news, but it's news to me, because i just found out.

also, it's not a fossil. it's in dna.

but let me give you the background first:

apes have 24 pairs of dna chromosomes in their cells. humans have 23 pairs.

somebody realized that if we descended from apes, we must have a chromosome that is two ape chromosomes fused.

well, the human genome project found it. inside human chromosome #2 is a discontinuity formed of two fused telomeres, which are the nonfunctional structures on the ends of chromosomes.

so it's literally a link. amazing, eh?

happy thanksgiving!
