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… pairs of chromosomes andbananas 11 pairs - even if the 11 banana chromosomes were identicalto human ones (they're not) it would still mean that less than halfof human DNA would be found in a banana.

In eucaryotes, DNA is only found in the nucleus of most cells, mitochondria and chloroplasts. In procaryotes, DNA is found in the cytoplasm in an area known as the nucleoid and in small, circular pieces of DNA called plasmids. Some animal viruses, plant viruses, and bacteriophages also contain DNA.
The DNA is found on the chromosomes, which is found in the Nucleus of the cell.
Banana spiders? Hope it helps! [Bananamaker] :D. A: . You can occassionally find various insects and arachnids in clusters of bananas, including tarantulas. You won't see this in the store, however, as the banana's are washed before deployment to the supermarkets.
The DNA molecule consists of two polynucleotide chains in the form of a double helix, containing phosphate and the sugar deoxyribose and linked by hydrogen bonds between the complementary bases adenine and thymine or cytosine and guanine.

Chromosomes are microscpic thread like strands composed of DNA. (DNA - Deoxyribonucleic acid) Over all, DNA contorls the production of proteins inside a cell. The proteins are used to control all chemical process within the cell.
Francis Crick and James Watson are primarily credited, although Maurice Wilkins also helped them and received the Nobel Prize for it. Also, Rosalind Franklin took a photo of DNA, which was stolen and given to Watson and Crick without her permission. They then used it to discover the double helix sh…ape of DNA. She got very little credit having been ignored and then dying of cancer just before the others received the Nobel Prize, as you cannot get this if you are dead. So Francis, James,and Rosalind got credit for finding DNA!!!! (MORE)
DNA is found in the nucleus of a cell. In addition, trace amount of DNA also found in Mitochondria and chloroplast.
Bananas grow on banana trees. They grow in warm places such as Africa or Florida. They are commercially planted in Ecuador, Philippines, Costa Rica, Columbia and mainly in equatorial regions. Queensland Australia
DNA is also known as deoxyribonucleic acid. It is found in thecell's nucleus as nuclear DNA. A genome is a set of DNA.
Potassium is one of the nutrients that can be found in bananas.Other nutrients include vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, dietaryfiber and biotin.
eukaryotic DNA is generally located in the cell nucleus in the form of a number of chromosomes. .Carlos C
DNA is a genetic material formed of protein and is predominantly found in nucleus of eukaryotes. It is also found in other cellular organilis like mitochondria and chloroplasts. But in prokaryotes (eg. bacteria) the DNA is locates freely in the cytosol.
nucleoid region, for those who happen to say nucleus, bacteriacells don't have a nucleus so this is in fact impossible.
There are 2 main substances that separate RNA from DNA: ribose sugar , and uracil . All DNA/RNA molecules have a backbone made up of a repeatingsequence of sugars and phosphorus. In DNA this sugar isdeoxyribose, while in RNA the sugar is ribose. Ribose sugar isdifferent from deoxyribose in that it… has an extra oxygen on itssecond carbon (this is thought to possibly be one of the reasonsRNA is less stable than DNA). The second substance that separates the two is uracil. Attached tothe phosphosugar backbone of DNA/RNA are 4 bases. In DNA these arecytosine, guanine, adenine, and thymine (C, G, A and T). However,in RNA the 4 bases are slightly different; they are cytosine,guanine, adenine, and uracil. Uracil is a base that only existsinRNA, while thymine is one that only exists in DNA. (MORE)
DNA is found inside of the nucleus in a cell.but in our body where is it found it is found in the white blood cells. :D
There aren't seeds in bananas. Sorry! . A: . If you split the banana lengthwise you'll find the seeds in rows to the left and right of the centerline, each less and 0.5mm in length. If you split the banana crosswise, you'll find a cluster of seeds in a starburst shape surrounding the core.
Proteins are not the exclusive property of animal meats. There are many plants that produce protein within their structures. Pinto and black beans, and chickpeas are all very high in protein. The trace amount of protein in bananas comes as a byproduct of the photosynthesis process. There is about… one gram of protein in a banana, therefore we do not think of bananas as a valuable protein source. The banana is very high in potassium which is it's main value to the body. (MORE)
Bananas are found in tropical areas in bunches on a banana tree. Like in the tropical rainforest. They are also found in South and North Asia.
A banana would. In an experiment I completed just a few days ago. More than a whole gram of DNA was able to be extracted from the Banana compared to a strawberry
A German Chemist, Friedrich Miescher, discovered DNA in 1869, only four years after Mendel's work was published. Miescher extracted a white substance from the nuclei of human cells and fish sperm. he called this substance "nuclein" because it seemed to be specifically associated with the nucleus.
The main nutrients found in bananas are vitamins B6, C and folate;minerals such as magnesium and potassium, fibre (includingresistant starch) and anitoxidants. There are thought to be otherbio-active compounds as eating bananas appears to reduce the riskof other conditions such as colon canceofand r…ectal cancer. (MORE)
Banana slugs are found in redwood forests along the Pacific Coast of the United States. The color ranges from bright yellow, yellow with black splotches, brown and even black. After rains or fog, the forest is very moist and a banana slug is easy to find. On hot day, this moisture loving mollusk is …no where to be found- probably trying to avoid the heat so it doesn't dry up. (MORE)
A ripe banana had more time to go through mitosis rather than an unripe banana had a lower time
There is the Brazilian Wandering Spider that is one of the worlds most toxic spiders. There is a black and yellow spider from the western Pacific and the Golden Silk Orb Weaver in Australia, Asia, Africa and the USA
Every organism has DNA flat out and simple. With no DNA, we would have no bananas. DNA is the basic building blocks for everything.
There are a number of conditions that must apply. Notable aresuitable preservation environment, and stability. If the animal has been preserved in ice and stayed frozen untilnow such as some cases of the Woolly Mammoth, they have thebest chances. Their DNA is relatively easy to extract, although …ithad major problems with contamination from modern and ancientbacteria. This bacterial DNA massively outweighed the Mammoths'DNA, requiring massive use of computers to search the DNA as it wassequenced comparing it to known bacterial samples vs. Elephant DNA. There are examples where extinct animal DNA has been found where itis a relatively bad environment, but a stably badenvironment. For instance giant ground sloth bones were found incaves in deserts that were technically too hot for goodpreservation, but because the caves had little change intemperature or humidity there was still DNA to extract. It is extremely rare to find DNA in fossilized animals. However, ina case discovered in the US, a 67 million year old TyrannosaurusRex was found with viable protein which could be use for comparingrelation of species, but never cloning. The paleontologists foundthe preserved tissue inside bones fossilized with large amounts ofiron and managed to extract small traces of protein. In this casethe large amount of iron worked out as a preservative. Often only Mitochondrial DNA is preserved. This is because mostcells have several, or in some cases many mitochondria, andmitochondria additionally have an extra layer of protection.Mitochondrial DNA has been extracted from a very large number ofrelatively recently extinct animals that were poorly preserved. Because the amounts of preserved ancient DNA in fossils is so tiny,very careful steps must be taken. Touching the remains bare handed,or even in some cases breathing on them can produce such massivecontamination that the ancient DNA is a drop in the ocean. Theremains, or more usually pieces of remains, are very carefullycleaned to try to remove as much outside contamination as possible.Samples are taken and put into a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reactioin),which causes the DNA to reproduce itself again and again and again,as much as possible. Once results start to come in, it's off to the computers. Since thevast majority of DNA is contamination, specifically bacteria,computers are used to identify the chunks of bacterial DNA and markthem for exclusion as fast as possible. Once this gives an idea ofwhat kind of original DNA is in the sample, it's possible to modifythe PCR process to target the original DNA and ignore thecontaminant DNA. This is done until there are enough pieces read in to startassembling them, often by matching them to what's thought to be theclosest living relative. (MORE)
yes, hydrogen bonds are what connects the double helix together. hydrogen bonds for between the nitrogen bases on each DNA strand. nitrogen bases are: - Cytosine (C) - Thymine (T) - Guanine (G) - Adenins (A)
The nucleus of a cell holds on the DNA and "information" of a cell. The DNA is attached to chromosomes in which are found in the nucleus, at least with eukaryote cells.
Which? I'm not sure what your asking.. Adenine(
In a DNA nucleotide, the following are found: . A nitrogen base, either adenine, guanine, cytosine, orthymine . deoxyribose . phosphate group
In any living cell, eukaryotic or prokaryotic, yes , the DNA is found within the cell.
In the nucleus. RNA needs to be manufactured during transcription because DNA is too big to leave the nucleus via the nuclear pores. The RNA is smaller and single stranded and therefore it is able to leave the nucleus via the nuclear pores into the cytoplasm where protein synthesis takes place as ri…bosomes are located in the cytoplasm.

When extracting DNA from a banana, the DNA must release from the cell by breaking apart or lysing the cellular and nuclear membranes. Lysing in this case is the act of breaking open the cell membranes to expose the contents. This is performed by mashing the banana and adding a detergent/salt solutio…n. (MORE)
Uracil is not found in a DNA molecule. DNA contains the bases Thymine, Adenine, Cytosine, and Guanine. RNA contains Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, but instead of Thymine, RNA has Uracil.
bananas were first found on an island by a boy who wanted a snack while on the beach. he had found out that the fruit wasnt posionis so he tried it. he thought it was the best tasting fruit in the world.
just like humans we all have different DNA , so bananas dont have the same
DNA was found in 1741, they were using a telescope and then Albert Einstine was the first one who told Galileo to use the telescope to see the stars and observe the amazing and incredible awesome answer done by me sorry if it's all wrong.....i want the same answer to for my science project LOL
In tropical places such as Mexico or Hawaii. Usually you don't find them growing naturally in any parts of North America. Many grow in south America though.
Do you mean what is the difference between DNA w/in chromosomes and DNA that is not? the DNA in chromosomes is tightly bound up (to histones) and therefore can not be accessed to be transcribed or replicated. Also this DNA may be methylated, or otherwise made inaccessible to enzymes that might a…ct on it (MORE)
Yes! Just like all living things, bananas have DNA. It is also possible to extract DNA from a banana. There are tons of online labs to do this.
Bananas are not trees. they are the largest flowering herbaceous plant cultivated in 107 countries in the world
Uracil. Thymine is switched out to Uracil, so Adenine will no longer pair with Thymine, it will pair with Uracil!
Maybe because bananas are annual kind of plant, which means they can survive in all year round in both rainy season and summer season and it's easy to produce unlike to the other plant to our surroundings. On the other hand, bananas have a juicy stem or body, it has a complete structures of genetic …information and besides banana can reproduce itself, without mating from the other plant nor from the other species of banana.(asexual reproduction).

The same exact base pairs; A, T, G and C, though they are arranged quite a bit differently to produce banana proteins.
Banana pudding recipes can be found online at home-cooking websites or basic recipe websites. Paula Deen, Southern Living, Food Network, Jell-O, and Kraft also have recipes for banana pudding. The wafer package will also contain a banana pudding recipe.
the benefit to extract DNA from banana IS TO PRODUCE NEW AND MORERAPID POPULATION OF FRUITS
DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is usually found in the nucleus of a cell. It makes up a spaghetti-like substance called chromatin, which coils into X-ish-shaped chromosomes during mitosis. Additionally, small amounts of DNA can be found in the mitochondria of a cell, called mitochondrial DNA.
DNA is the genetic material of all livingthings on the Planet and it holds the instructions for making allthe proteins in our bodies. DNA is found inside a special area ofthe cell called the nucleus.
