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)

Where is DNA found?

In eucaryotes, DNA is only found in the nucleus of most cells, mitochondria and chloroplasts.
