I'm sure it differs with each species but I know human DNA and chimpanzee DNA only differ by 2% if not less

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.

Mixing animal DNA with human DNA?

Some people ask can you mix human and animal dna. My answer is yes you could. As long a you took thprocedure slowly and combined the dna one step and small amount at a time it is possible to mix the dna. My question is would the human gain attributes from the animals dna such as enhanced hearing, si (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)

Where can you combine human DNA with animal DNA?

More on this . Biological medicines are designed to mimic certain 'naturally' occurring proteins that, when used therapeutically, interrupt signaling of the immune system and, at times, induce the death of the target cells. They represent complex proteins that are produced using recombinant DNA t (MORE)

How is animal DNA different from Human DNA?

First, humans are animals. We are not some separate creature. We are part of the animal kingdom. Second, there is no difference in DNA. DNA is DNA. You find the same four bases (ATGC) in humans, bonobos, pigeons, mice, tuna, tiger sharks, bacteria, protozoa, ... and the list goes on. The bases (MORE)

How much DNA can be found in a human?

The human genome contains 3,079,860,316 base pairs of DNA, arranged in 23 pairs of chromosomes plus mitochondrial DNA. These form 32,185 distinct genes.

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.

How much DNA do humans have?

Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, and just over 3 billion base pairs. Each cell in the human body has about 2m of DNA (if it were stretched out). This means that an average human's DNA would be 2 * 10 11 km long! This length is 500,000 times the distance to the moon (4 * 10 5 km).

Do animals Have the same DNA as humans?

No. But the chimpanzee's DNA is similar to ours by 98% People believe that we humans developed from the ' chimpanzee because of how similar our DNA samples. It is thought that the chimpanzee is as intelligent as a human but in different ways.

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.

What characteristics do humans share with animals?

Animals and humans are both in the animal kingdom. Characteristicsthat animals and humans share are emotions, thoughts, and physicalsimilarities. For example, a humans and animals are social beingswho form bonds with family, friends, and neighbors.

Which animal is closest to human DNA?

Although it is commonly known that chimpanzees are 99% human, the most updated studies show that they still have the closest DNA to humans of all the other animals, but are rather closer to 95% human.

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 animal DNA differnt from human DNA?

First, humans are animals. We are not some separate creature. We are part of the animal kingdom. Second, there is no difference in DNA. DNA is DNA. You find the same four bases (ATGC) in humans, bonobos, pigeons, mice, tuna, tiger sharks, bacteria, protozoa, ... and the list goes on. The bases (MORE)

Can you combine Human DNA and animal DNA?

Yes and no. The only distinction between humans and animals is in the eye of the beholder. However, viable DNA through either natural or artificial methods of reproduction can only be created, by modern knowledge, between members of the same Genus (it's speculated that this could be extended to memb (MORE)

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)

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)

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)

How are animal DNA and human DNA different?

The DNA is the same chemical. The instructions coded for by the DNA(the proteins cells make using it) are however slightly differentfor every individual in a species and there are more differencesbetween species.

Is animal DNA different from human DNA?

All DNA is made up of strings of genes, but the DNA of each specieshas differences in the strings of genes its DNA contains. In thatrespect, animal DNA is different than human DNA.
