Very close to be perfect

One mistake, the genetic variation among human is less than the genetic variation among different chimpanzees. The total human variations are severely affected by the migration, founder effect, and bottle neck event.

I love the topics and information

But I need y’all to relax. There is no naturalness in the way you speak. Just take a breath and stop trying to force it. Let you’re real personality come through.
