"we cannot fully understand human genome function until we have identified genetic features that underlie uniquely human anatomical, physiological, behavioral, and cognitive characteristics"[1].

The Human Genetic Uniqueness Project allows Wikiversity students to join in the search for genes that account for the genetic differences between humans and our closest relatives. This project serves as a portal for learning about human biology. Student activities center on accessing genome databases and analysis of differences between human genes and the genes of other species. Background learning topics include learning about genes, and genome sequencing projects.
