I have a question about the statement: “Like humans, baboons respond to stress through the release of stress hormones, and these two groups have about 95 percent genetic similarity.” I found this in the Baboon entry. Does anyone have a reference or citation regarding the 95%?

I’m trying to find the source to cite for a school project. Everyone keeps mentioning 90-95% similarity between humans and baboons, but I can’t find it in anywhere in scientific journals.

Thanks for any help!
