What dinosaur is related to a chicken?

Analysis of a shred of 68-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex protein - along with that of 21 modern species and an extinct mastodon - confirms that dinosaurs share common ancestry with birds, particularly chickens and ostriches, and to a lesser extent, alligators.

In this way, what is the closest living relative to a T Rex?

With scientists having named the chicken as the closest living relative of the mighty T-Rex, a second group of researchers have decided to put the findings into practice - by strapping a fake dinosaur tail to the birds.

What is the closest living relative to humans?

"This will allow us to look for the genetic basis of what makes modern humans different from both bonobos and chimpanzees." Ever since researchers sequenced the chimp genome in 2005, they have known that humans share about 99% of our DNA with chimpanzees, making them our closest living relatives.
