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.

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)

Can a human catch mites from a lizard?

\nMites, fleas, lice, and other parasites tend to be quite species-specific. For instance, the human head louse is a different species from the human public louse, and neither is closely related to the human body louse. A mite that lives on a lizard probably wouldn't effectively infest a human, an (MORE)

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)

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)

How much are lizards?

Lizards are about $30 to $40 at a local pet store. With suppiles like a cage, food, and blah, is about $80 to $140. Depends on if you are a spender or not! =)

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 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.

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).

How much DNA do you share with your second cousin once removed?

If we assume that the maximum possible match is in place it could be 25%. That assumes that brother and sister share 100% (very unlikely unless they are identical twins). Which means each of their kids inherit 50% of the same genes (very unlikely). And one of their kids would get 25% of the original (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.

How do you get lizard DNA?

Based on the experiments I've done with DNA, I'd start with a lizard and a blender. I'm guessing you really meant "how can you get lizard DNA inside your body"? In which case: lizard, blender, straw. You cannot incorporate lizard DNA into your own DNA, if you were hoping to become the Ludicrous (MORE)

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).

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)

What did many dinosaurs share with today's lizards?

They were both reptiles, meaning that they could lay eggs out of the water. Many of them probably had scales, as do snakes and turtles. In terms of locomotion, body chemistry and care for their young, however, dinosaurs were much more like today's birds. In fact, some scientists consider them so clo (MORE)
