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.

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.

What vegetable shares DNA with humans?

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

That is true for plant cells, human cells, bacterial cells, or a ( Full Answer )

What is your DNA shared with?

You question is strange, as I see it is categorized within the Gorillas section. Normally the question would infer parentage and/or shared alleles with siblings or cousins, however, you have categorized this in Gorillas and Orangutans, so I can only guess that you wish to ask an evolutionary questio ( Full Answer )

What components do DNA and RNA share?

It is easier to say which componants are different as the two types of molecule are very similar. RNA uses ribose in the sugar-phosphate backbone rather than deoxyribose, as in DNA. And in RNA uracil (U) is used in place of (T) as a base. These are the two major differences. If you want a list of si ( Full Answer )

How does the DNA of a chimp compare to the DNA of a human?

Chimps have one less chromosome than humans. that is why if we try to interbreed we could never create offspring...well only in rare cases... but our offspring would have down syndrome... or something of that extent.
