    Anne Fischer

    Mol Biol Evol 22:432-6. 2005
    ..However, in contrast to the olfactory receptor gene repertoire, where humans have a higher proportion of pseudogenes than apes, there is no evidence that the rate of loss of bitter taste receptor genes varies among humans and apes...
  2. ncbi Demographic history and genetic differentiation in apes
    Anne Fischer
    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Deutscher Platz 6, D 04103 Leipzig, Germany
    Curr Biol 16:1133-8. 2006
    ..Finally, we find that the extent of genetic differentiation among "subspecies" of chimpanzees and orangutans is comparable to that seen among human populations, calling the validity of the "subspecies" concept in apes into question...

    Jeffrey M Good
    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    Mol Biol Evol 30:964-76. 2013
    ..Thus, general patterns of male reproductive protein evolution among apes and humans depend strongly on gene function but not on inferred differences in the intensity of sperm competition among extant species...

    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, D 04103 Leipzig, Germany
    Nature 486:527-31. 2012
    ..In addition, many of the regions that overlap genes may eventually help us understand the genetic basis of phenotypes that humans share with one of the two apes to the exclusion of the other...
