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.

# 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)

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

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.

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).

# Is a dogs DNA close to a human DNA?

Define "close." DNA is, despite the popular image, not really much at all like a blueprint for a complete organism in the sense of having some kind of "image" embedded in it. It's rather a description of how to make the tools, how to cut and treat the wood, how to join two pieces of wood together (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.

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.
