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 do you have?

There is a double helix of DNA in every cell in the human body. There are an estimated 3 billion base pairs of DNA inside of every human cell. These base pairs are organized into 23 chromosome pairs. -DrBeaver

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)

Is human and Ape DNA similar?

Human and ape DNA are remarkably similar. In fact chimpanzees are so closely related to us (around 98-99 percent DNA relatedness) that many scientists are suggesting that the genus Pan should be scrapped and moved to the Homo genus.

What are the characteristics that humans share with the great apes?

Humans and apes are of the same Kingdom, Phylum, Family, Class and Order. Both are bipeds. For the most part, humans and apes have opposable thumbs (apes have it to some extent). Humans and Apes are both bipeds and placentals. Studies show that most apes are able to learn, understand others, and fee (MORE)

How much do apes weigh?

It depends on the category. Some varieties of apes are less than 50 pounds and some are gigantic like the gorillas which weigh around 500 pounds.

When did humans share a common ancestor with apes?

Current thinking is that humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor and scientists are getting closer and closer to telling us that story of our origins. However, they do not have the definitive answer yet. On October 9, 2009 scientists announced the discovery of the oldest fossil skeleton of (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)

How much does a ape weigh?

It depends on the ape category. Gorillas are the heaviest and weigh upto 500 pounds or even more. There are other varieties that weigh less than 25 pounds.

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 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 much a share?

How much do apes eat?

apes eat lots of bananas and other fruits and also they eat lots of grass because when there traveling they don't have time to stop and search for fruits and all that stuff

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.

Is the DNA of humans more similar to the DNA of birds or apes?

Humans are more closely related to apes. In 2012 scientists completed the genome of the bonobo, an African ape. When added to the genomes that have already been completed for orangutans, gorillas and chimpanzees we now have a complete DNA catalogue of the great apes. The studies show that humans are (MORE)

What is the common DNA found in apes?

Biologists classify humans along with other species such as great apes. apes belong to a group known as the primates. The commaon DNA they share is Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and nuclear DNA (nDNA).

What are characteristics humans don't share with apes?

Besides a few obvious external differences (such as the fact that humans walk on two feet, and have shorter, thinner body hair), humans use fire and metal, and we write and create art. An ape, however, will make art if it is shown how, and they take pleasure in it. Currently, experiments are being c (MORE)

What percentage of DNA do you share with your half cousin?

This question cannot be answered because the term "half-cousin" has no meaning. Presumably, the term is intended to be analogous to half-sibling, where children share one but not both parents. In the case of cousins, however, the relationship derives from a single common ancestor, and you can't h (MORE)

Can humans still have a bit of ape DNA in them?

Yes. We have all but I think 2 genes the same as apes. We are all apes, just more evolved. Their brain stops growin sooner than humans. That's why their head shape is different. We also have the same embryos. Hope I helped you (:

How much is an ape?

I assume you want to know how much an ape weighs. It depends on which one, but it could be as much as several hundred pounds.

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)

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)

How much is a subscription to AP magazine?

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)
