How much DNA do humans share with each other?
99.9% is exactly the same. .1% gives each individual their own personal fingerprint. Meaning, only .1% codes for proteins that express our differences.

ANSWER There are only two differences between RNA and DNA and that is the substitution of Thymine (in DNA) with Uracil (in RNA). Although DNA is mostly double stranded and RNA mostly single stranded, there are BOTH single stranded DNA and double stranded RNA amongst the viruses. It is one of the m…ajor levels used to classify viruses. The other difference is, in DNA 2-deoxy-D-ribose is used in the spine while in RNA just plain D-ribose is used. RNA is similar to DNA. There are a couple differences though. One is that RNA is single stranded and DNA is double stranded. ( Full Answer )
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.

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…f course the fine details depend on what specific chromosomes one is looking at. Although 96% of the DNA is similar overall, there are some very significant differences in some chromosomes, where other chromosomes are nearly identical. Specifically, 18 of the chromosomes of humans are nearly identical to those of chimpanzees, the rest are very different (eg: chromosomes 4, 9, 12, 21, and y). Some specific examples of differences include: 1) Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes in total while chimpanzees have 24. 2) Chimpanzees and other apes have telomeres about 23 kilobases long, whereas humans are completely unique among primates with much shorter telomeres only 10 kilobases long. 3) The Y chromosome in chimpanzees is smaller than that of humans and only 60% of the genes are similar to those of the y chromosome of humans.

Another Perspective It really depends on what we are comparing - the entire genome or just the small fraction (1%) which codes for proteins. If we compare the ENTIRE genome to another then the figures for similarity are very low and in fact, such a study has not been done. If we compare the similarities between the genes that code JUST FOR PROTEINS (1% of entire genome), then the figure is very high! The vast majority of mammalian DNA does NOT code for proteins - it was once believed to be "junk DNA" with no function - Now we know this assumption was totally wrong. We now know they play an important role in preserving the genome itself - and many other functions as well. ( Full Answer )
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.
if you mean length its roughly 2 meters if you want the chromosomes there are 24 pairs
Humans do not share much DNA with an apple. They share only about40% of the same DNA.
Humans share DNA with many other species, chimpanzees and humansshare 98% of the same DNA. Humans and mushrooms share 67% of thesame DNA.
Chimpanzees share the most. The old number was 98.5%, but recent tests say less than 95%.
this might not be exactly right but the best answer i found is that they are 80% similar to us humans.
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.
Physically, we are what our DNA determines us to be. My hair colour was determined when I was conceived, so was my skin- and eye-colour. Whether I would be tall or short was also determined then.. When animals mate, one half of the male's DNA is matched with one half of the female's. These halvings… don't always follow the same pattern. In my case, my mother and father had four children, and each of us got different bits of their DNA.... not very different bits, just slightly different - that's why we look somewhat alike.. The reason humans differ - physically - from one another is because they all got different parts of their parents' DNA - and their parents' DNA was already different from other people's.. Most animals reproduce like this - except for insect species where there is a 'queen' who's offspring are almost all totally identical.. The other way we differ of course is temperamentally - our characters are all different because they are formed when we are young and our family background and our environment contribute to shape our personality, so we differ from people who had a very different background and lived in different times.

Humans and cats have similar x and y chromosomes and have the sameancestor from the past. Cats and humans share 90 percent ofhomologous genes.
In DNA, Guanine bonds to Cytosine, via three hydrogen bonds, and Thymine bonds to Adenine, via two hydrogen bonds.
In DNA, the four Nitrogenous bases are A= Adenine, T= Thymine, C= Cytosine, and G= Guanine. A pairs with T and G pairs with C through strong bonds called "Hydrogen Bond." A-T base-pairs are held together by 2 Hydrogen bonds, whereas, G-T base-pairs are held together by 3 Hydrogen bonds. If you are f…amiliar with their structures, you can easily see where the "active" part of the molecules are located, aka where the Hydrogen bonds are formed. WARNING : As these particular bonds are the most desirable and MOST COMMON, it is POSSIBLE for a scenario to occur, where for example, an A (Adenine) binds to G (Guanine) base. Such a case, would therefore lead to what is known as a "mutation," during the Replication Process of DNA. There are numerous types of causes (i.e., natural vs. "unnatural"), types (i.e., deletion, insertion, etc), and results (i.e., gene expression) of mutations. ( Full Answer )
Surprisingly, according to the related link below, domestic bovines (or the colloquial "cow") actually share 80% of genes 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…ny other type of cell. So anything that's made of cells (including single-celled organisms) is living and contains DNA. And some of that DNA will be identical. I feel like I should mention that all cells also have RNA. DNA is used as a recipe to make proteins. However, the mechanism to make proteins is in a different place than where the DNA is housed. RNA is a copy of a small piece of DNA (gene) that can travel to the protein-making machinery.

anywhere from 0% to 100%. but on average, you share 50% of your DNA with your siblings.
If unraveled and lined up end to end they would be 13020 million miles long
\nThe enzymes that copy DNA are made of protein. Also, DNA carries the code for protein synthesis, but since DNA cannot leave the cell the code is transferred to RNA and then brought to the ribosomes to synthesize specific proteins.
The human genome contains 3,079,860,316 base pairs of DNA, arranged in 23 pairs of chromosomes plus mitochondrial DNA. These form 32,185 distinct genes.
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.
Comparing ants to humans scientists found that approximately 20percent of their genes are unique. Thirty three percent of theirgenetic material is shared with humans.
Cats and humans share similar X and Y chromosomes, in fact the two species shared a common ancestor about 90 million years ago and share 90% of (homologous) genes with humans
Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, and just over 3 billion base pairs. Each cell in the human body has about 2m of DNA (if it were stretched out). This means that an average human's DNA would be 2 * 10 11 km long! This length is 500,000 times the distance to the moon (4 * 10 5 km).
The nucleotides in DNA are bonded to each other by covalent bondingwithin a strand. Hydrogen bonding occurs across strands of DNA.
In DNA there are four bases: adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine. Adenine always pairs with thymine and guanine always pairs with cytosine. When joined, they are called base pairs.
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.
For each person, Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine, and Guanine can be in different amounts. It what makes you you.
Well most of the body contains DNA but nobody knows really how but DNA you have in your body.
we are all bannas and slugs and apes so they had a three way atsome point
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 sure it differs with each species but I know human DNA and chimpanzee DNA only differ by 2% if not less
Hydrogen bonds. There are three hydrogen bonds between G and C and two between A and T.
It is a holdover from the early days of man when fighting literally meant survival. The need may not exist anymore, but the urge is built in.
Humans are typically 99.9% alike to one another, but some genes like the hair color or the eye color are different.
Assuming that you mean imprint, as in the imprinting in the Twilight saga, and assuming you are asking if humans in the Twilight saga imprint, then the answer is no. Imprinting in the Twilight saga is werewolves-only. However, some people in the real world do believe in the whole "Love at first s…ight" thing. Many people do fall in love at the first sight of people. It's really up to you, if you believe in love at first sight, then yes humans do imprint in a way. If you don't believe in love at first sight, then no they don't imprint at all. ( Full Answer )
I've just come back from Borneo. The rangers at the Sepilock sanctuary have said the DNA is 96.4% the same.
No because otherwise your dick would look like a Lettuce, oh wait it all ready does
Adenine and Thymine Cytosine and Guanine One way to remember this is by remembering: Apple Tree Chewing Gum (Since A is paired with T and C is paired with G).
98% percent of EVERYONES DNA is shared. you share 98% with your mom, teacher, friend, cousin, it really doesn't matter. but 98% is shared amongst everyone.. The above answer is partially correct but only very generally speaking. We also share close to 98% of our DNA with chimps. The real difference…s come when scientists examine the additions and deletions common to genetic subsets of humans. For example when additions and deletions found in chimp DNA is accounted for the similarity is really closer to 95%. Some researchers have found that there is greater than 1% difference in subsets of humans, which is potentially huge. . ( Full Answer )
Recent studies have shown that many of these environmentally induced differences are acquired via the epigenome.
The answer is yes,if brothers share a bedroom there is a chance that they share underwear and look at each others naked body
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…l-lizard common ancestor long after the fish-amphibian common ancestor. Humans share as much as 50% of genes with plants, so our relatedness to nuts is around this figure. It is interesting to note that researchers have found various genes associated with human ailments in different creatures. For instance, the gene connected to deafness has been found in some plants.

All humans have the exact same genes located in the same place on the chromosomes; this is what makes genetic mapping possible. What is different is the form of the gene ( allele). We all have genes for eyes, for example. Will the eyes be round or almond shaped? Will they be blue, green, brown or …some other color? All these varients are alleles for the same trait ( eyes). So although we all have the same genes, we don't all look alike! ( Full Answer )
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…n has been mostly completed. Given that chickens aren't that much closer to or further from humans than crows, the DNA similarity between humans and chickens is at least in the same ballpark as humans and crows. The chicken genome is about 1/3 the size of the human genome (1.2Gb instead of 3.4 Gb) but this is not due to much to birds having fewer genes as having mostly the same genes more compactly arranged in chromosomes. My own experience (I have a little experience with chicken genetics) has been that chicken genes tend to be about 75-85% identical with human genes. ( Full Answer )
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 …have 48 chromosomes,their DNA STUCTURE is vastly different. ( Full Answer )
Bonobos share about 98.7% of their DNA with humans: about the same amount that chimpanzees share with us.
Yes, they do. It is a small amount but interesting that we arerelated to grass.
Because they can. Also because they have an almost universal fear of hard work and labor. Feeling it better to let others do the work for them. It is also noted that enslaving someone gives you a feeling of superiority. kapm
