How much DNA do humans share with each other?
99.9% is exactly the same. .1% gives each individual their own personal fingerprint. Meaning, only .1% codes for proteins that express our differences.

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 pairs of chromosomes andbananas 11 pairs - even if the 11 banana chromosomes were identicalto human ones (they're not) it would still mean that less than halfof human DNA would be found in a banana.
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 s…imilarities.
Humans do not share much DNA with an apple. They share only about40% of the same DNA.
Humans and cats have similar x and y chromosomes and have the sameancestor from the past. Cats and humans share 90 percent ofhomologous genes.
Surprisingly, according to the related link below, domestic bovines (or the colloquial "cow") actually share 80% of genes with humans.
It depends on exactly what you're comparing, but ~90% is a good approximate figure.
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 relat…ed links for the articles.
we are all bannas and slugs and apes so they had a three way atsome point
I'm sure it differs with each species but I know human DNA and chimpanzee DNA only differ by 2% if not less
I've just come back from Borneo. The rangers at the Sepilock sanctuary have said the DNA is 96.4% the same.
Depends, if your talking about yourself, all of it.
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 c…hain. Chimpanzeeand humans share a very SIMILAR DNA pattern, where as a potato anda human being don't. So although they both have 48 chromosomes,their DNA STUCTURE is vastly different.
