Using the NCBI Genome Databases to Compare the Genes for Human & Chimpanzee Beta Hemoglobin
Offner, Susan
American Biology Teacher, v72 n4 p252-256 Apr 2010
The beta hemoglobin protein is identical in humans and chimpanzees. In this tutorial, students see that even though the proteins are identical, the genes that code for them are not. There are many more differences in the introns than in the exons, which indicates that coding regions of DNA are more highly conserved than non-coding regions.
