It's probably a fairly small proportion. According to evolutionary biologist Robert May, President of Britain's Royal Society, "We share half our genes with the banana" (2001), but genes only make up 2% of human DNA - the answer depends on what proportion of the remaining 98% is the same. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes and bananas 11 pairs - even if the 11 banana chromosomes were identical to human ones (they're not) it would still mean that less than half of human DNA would be found in a banana.

# How much DNA do humans share with each other?

\n. \n99.9% is exactly the same. .1% gives each individual their own personal fingerprint. Meaning, only .1% codes for proteins that express our differences.

# 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.

# How much DNA are in human body cells?

There are about 50 million or 50 trillion in the adult body. But that isn't always true. It may not be true because cells die and form again. And it will be hard to count all the cells. Adult and child cells don't add up because and adult is big but a child is small so the child will have less sells (MORE)

All of them do, if you mean vegetables and humans have genes that are identical.

# 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).

When extracting DNA from a banana, the DNA must release from the cell by breaking apart or lysing the cellular and nuclear membranes. Lysing in this case is the act of breaking open the cell membranes to expose the contents. This is performed by mashing the banana and adding a detergent/salt solutio (MORE)
