As to obtaining samples, you might find a zoo that is caring for a
baby boy bonobo or chimp. An infant might raise less objection to
being swabbed than an adult. IIRC, zoos often do paternity tests
on bonobos and chimps.

How about testing mtDNA while we're at it?

I have to unsub for 2 weeks because of travel but will try to check
the list archives. And count me in for a donation ($ not DNA).
