already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Yes, they do. It is a small amount but interesting that we are related to grass.

How much DNA do humans share with bananas?

It's probably a fairly small proportion. According to evolutionarybiologist Robert May, President of Britain's Royal Society, "Weshare half our genes with the banana" (2001), but genes only makeup 2% of human DNA - the answer depends on what proportion of theremaining 98% is the same. Humans have 23 (MORE)

What percentage of DNA do humans and chimpanzees share?

One Perspective Although it has commonly been stated in the past that humans and chimpanzees have 98.5% DNA similarity, this figure has recently been found to be incorrect. Newer research has suggested that there is approximately 96% genetic similarity between Humans and chimpanzees overall. O (MORE)

How much DNA do humans share with a whale?

We will not know the answer to this until the genomes of whale species are sequenced. However, given that whales and humans are mammals, they would be expected to share many similarities.

Does Human pee kill the grass?

As odd as this sounds I have been testing this recently. I've been peeing on one patch late at night before bed and it's grown considerably while the grass around it hasn't grown nearly as much. I'm now testing a new untouched spot and seem to be getting the same results; lush, green grass. I've (MORE)

Why dont humans eat grass?

Because were not that stupid yet and it does not supply us with enough nutrients and not to mention how would you like a grass salad .

What percentage of DNA do siblings share?

You probably share about 50% of your DNA with a sibling. Theoretically, it could be as low as 0 (though that is extremely unlikely). Identically twins share 100%. You always share close to 50% with each parent. But if you are male, you actually have a slightly higher percentage from your mother (bec (MORE)

Can you extract DNA from grass?

I am trying this as I type this. I read on a website what to do: get a DNA source (I plucked fresh grass from outside), blend it in a blender with 1/8 tsp salt and a cup of cold water, strained it, added 2 tbs. detergent, let it sit, and then put some of the solution in a small glass container (I us (MORE)

What vegetable shares DNA with humans?

All of them do, if you mean vegetables and humans have genes that are identical. While plants and humans are wildly different, every cell has to do specific things to survive, like metabolize sugar or repair damage to their own DNA. That is true for plant cells, human cells, bacterial cells, or a (MORE)

Can humans survive by eating grass?

No, the human digestive system is not designed to handle grass. See the related questions below for more information and more insight into this.

Does human urine hurt grass?

For the most part Urine is what our biological bodies do to expel the toxins created within our bodies. Chemical composition would dictate if I were to pee repeatedly in the same spot after a while there would be an area that will be visibly altered. And it wouldn't take all that very long. Urine ha (MORE)

What is your DNA shared with?

You question is strange, as I see it is categorized within the Gorillas section. Normally the question would infer parentage and/or shared alleles with siblings or cousins, however, you have categorized this in Gorillas and Orangutans, so I can only guess that you wish to ask an evolutionary questio (MORE)

What percentage of DNA do humans share with a dog?

I have heard several figures, but the most believable I've heard was 75% of our DNA being the same as that of a dog even though they have 78 chromosomes while we have 46. We share 50% of our DNA with bananas, same for fruit flies. 97% of our DNA is shared with Chimps.

What has human DNA?

A human ;) But the human DNA is developed from the zygote, so when the sperm fertilizes the egg in the womb.

What components do DNA and RNA share?

It is easier to say which componants are different as the two types of molecule are very similar. RNA uses ribose in the sugar-phosphate backbone rather than deoxyribose, as in DNA. And in RNA uracil (U) is used in place of (T) as a base. These are the two major differences. If you want a list of si (MORE)

How much DNA do humans share with a chimp?

It is commonly though to be 98%. However, recent studies have differing views. The BBC has published 95%, and Riken (a Japanese Lab) has published 85%. Please see the related links for the articles.

Do the cattail and grass share the same niche?

Other than the fact that both are monocots (they start life with a single cotyledon), there is little similarity, botanically, between cattails and grasses. In terms of habitat, cattails grow in wet areas near freshwater ponds and swamps, while most grasses prefer dryer ground.

How much DNA do you share with chimps?

Answers range from 95%-99% 95%, but is about right. Chimpanzees are the animals most closely related to us in the evolutionary tree, that does not mean that chimpanzees are 95% similar to us, though.

How is DNA different from human DNA?

DNA is exactly the same in every species it is found in. It always has a sugar-phosphate backbone and the same four bases - A, T, G and C. The only thing that changes is the number of genes found in the DNA (and the sequence of the bases).

Is grass edible for humans?

it is not really a good source of nutrition. The cellulose is very hard for the human digestive system to break down. However, humans eat a lot of grass seeds, such as wheat, barley, rice and corn.

Is grass edible to humans?

no ordinary grass is not edible for humans because our digestive system is unable to digest it . but people do eat onion grass and at pizza places they put it on pizza .yummy!

Do you humans and chimpanzees share 50 percent of their DNA sequences?

The concluding result of the Chimpanzee and Human Genome project was that human locus contains approximately 150 thousand "additional" base pairs NOT found in chimpanzee chromosome 12 and 13, also known as 2A and 2B. A fusion event would not result in more informational DNA out of thin air, therefor (MORE)

What percent of DNA does the human race share?

98% percent of EVERYONES DNA is shared. you share 98% with your mom, teacher, friend, cousin, it really doesn't matter. but 98% is shared amongst everyone.. The above answer is partially correct but only very generally speaking. We also share close to 98% of our DNA with chimps. The real difference (MORE)

Why can a human not eat grass?

Well humans don't eat grass because it just isn't on the food pyramid or anything plus cows and horses eat grass. Plus grass is in the ground and the ground is not clean.

How much DNA do humans share with nuts?

All living creatures on earth share some amount of DNA, including mammals, reptiles, fish, plants, sea sponges, bacteria, and viruses. Humans share much more DNA with mammals than any other creature. And we share more DNA with lizards than we do fish. This is because mammals split off from the mamma (MORE)

Do bonobos share 90 percent of their DNA with humans?

Yes. I think the number is actually closer to 98% shared. Most of the differences between a bonobo and a human being are not so much that we have different genes (a lot of the 2% difference between bonobos and human genes is trivial) but rather we use the same set of genes differently. A rather crud (MORE)

How much DNA do crows share with Humans?

To my knowledge, the crow genome has not been sufficiently analyzed for a definite answer. The process of complete genome analysis is time consuming and expensive, so scientists have been selecting organisms that are highly used in research for genome analysis. That said, the genome of the chicke (MORE)

How much DNA does a human share with a potato?

Humans share very little with a potato. Chromosomes are acollection of DNA woven around protein. A chromosome may contain asmany as 100,000 to billions of nucleotides in one chain. Chimpanzeeand humans share a very SIMILAR DNA pattern, where as a potato anda human being don't. So although they both (MORE)

What percentage of DNA do you share with dogs?

Humans and dogs only share about 25% of the exact same DNA or genome sequence. They also have a different number of chromosomes. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes and dogs have 39 pairs.

Can animals mutate by sharing DNA?

Animals don't share DNA with other animals. A virus can inject aDNA fragment into an animal cell, but that won't have anevolutionary effect unless it happens in either a sperm or egg celland in a location of the genome that disrupts it in some way. Bacteria, though not animals, do share DNA with ot (MORE)
