Uncovering the HARbingers of human brain evolution.
During evolution, humans acquired extensive genomic changes that collectively define unique features of our species, yet functions for these sequence variants are largely unknown. In this issue of Neuron, Girskis et al. comprehensively screen human accelerated regions (HARs) for enhancer activity in human-specific cortical development, creating a valuable online resource.
