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.

I'm not sure how big of a category apes are but we share 98% of our DNA with chimpanzees. They're the closest creatures to us.
Surprisingly, according to the related link below, domestic bovines (or the colloquial "cow") actually share 80% of genes with humans.
anywhere from 0% to 100%. but on average, you share 50% of your DNA with your siblings.
You share 99.8 percent of your DNA with Ronald Reagan how much of your DNA do you share with bonzo his chimp co-star?

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
Nearly all of it ... around 98%. The vast majority of DNA is concerned with the basic chemistry of life, which is nearly identical between a chimp and a human. It's not all th…at terribly different between an amoeba and a human, for that matter. The instructions for making enzymes to metabolize glucose, to replicate DNA, to produce amino acids ... all pretty much the same for any form of life we know of.
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.
A Chimpanzee is a living creature and all living creatures have DNA, so naturally a chimpanzee does. DNA contains the genetic code for life, so chimpanzees need to have DNA.
Not much- probably only about 25-30%.
