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.

\n. \n99.9% is exactly the same. .1% gives each individual their own personal fingerprint. Meaning, only .1% codes for proteins that express our differences.
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.
When the embryo is formed, it's created from half of the father'sDNA and half of the mother's DNA to create the needed amount ofDNA. This DNA determines many traits. Your siblings got a similar,though unique, set of DNA from your parents, and as such they sharetraits, but are still different from yo…u. ( Full Answer )
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.
There is a double helix of DNA in every cell in the human body. There are an estimated 3 billion base pairs of DNA inside of every human cell. These base pairs are organized into 23 chromosome pairs. -DrBeaver
Assuming no inbreeding, the current descendent would have only 1/64 (less than 1.5%) of his ancestors DNA.
No, unless they are Identical Twins. Normal siblings will on average share 50 percent of their genetic material, since they get half of their chromosomes from their mother and half from their father.
Chimpanzees share the most. The old number was 98.5%, but recent tests say less than 95%.
If I won the lottery and wanted to share the wealth with children siblings parents and in laws who pays the taxes and how much?
I believe you answered your own question with the "...I won the lottery...". That clearly says it's your winnings. Your just giving some of it to others. The winnings are taxed as ordinary income...the amount or rate depends on your own personal status and factors (like other income, deductions…, exemptions, etc) ...and location (State taxes ). The others of course won't be subject to income tax on the gift, however, you may have gift tax consequences (which in most family situations are easily avoided). ( Full Answer )
No? They have their own unique DNA- two different eggs two different sperms cells. Identical twins- shares the same DNA, same chromosomes.
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.
You probably share about 50% of your DNA with a sibling. Theoretically, it could be as low as 0 (though that is extremely unlikely). Identically twins share 100%. You always share close to 50% with each parent. But if you are male, you actually have a slightly higher percentage from your mother (bec…ause the X chromosome is larger than the Y). ( Full Answer )
Humans and cats have similar x and y chromosomes and have the sameancestor from the past. Cats and humans share 90 percent ofhomologous genes.
If both a brother and/or sister, share a room. They will most likely see each other more, and start a stronger, kinder relationship with one another. This helps start a healthy family relationship. ( less bickering, yelling, and blaming one another for mistakes that might happen in the house.). Whi…le the first answer up top here is good you must also take into consideration the personalities or your kids and any issues they may have with each other. I grew up with 5 siblings and we had to share two very small bedrooms 3 girls in one 3 boys in the other. We got along and had to learn to share which is very important but if your kids haven't grown up like that you may have to take it in steps to get them used to sharing a small space and deal with issues like what music to listen to or which posters need to be hung on the wall. The younger you get them started to better because if you wait til there preteen to teenager it may be far more difficult to have them build a relationship out a family love and not hate about having to share what they think should be their private room.

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.

100% the same DNA. They come from the same fertilized egg that's just split so they will share all the same chromosomes.
sure, if youd like to think that. but perhaps they share the DNA... why wouldn't you think they do?
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…n. If this is the case then we do show similarities with the simian species (monkeys and the likes). However, many essential proteins take more similar heritage from other species such as pigs, mice and even fish! ( Full Answer )
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
Whatever age you think i think that if their is an older siblings and two yougner sibligns and they are a girl abd boy they share a room till they get older
genome wide scan data genotyping if the sibs are sharing more than 4 allele than how tointerprete the data
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…milarities then: -both use a sugar phosphate backbone onto which bases are assembled -Both use four bases to encode information (A,T,C,G - DNA) and(A,U,C,G- RNA) -both use hydrogen bonding between bases to join sense and antisense strands (both sides of the ladder) -all nucleotides (bases) used to make to both DNA and RNA have 3 phosphate groups attached to them before they are added to the growing chain. struggling to think of many more as effectively RNA is a copy of DNA with a few minor differences!

Yes. You can determine paternity from DNA samples of siblings. This is done by using the gel electrophoresis method. Based upon the bands which are seen, one can denote the paternity as well as maternity. But for this the DNA sample of the father/s is also tested. This method is frequently used in F…orensic Science. ( Full Answer )
I don't live in the UK but I think there is no laws other than mabey 2 or 3 is the limit.\n. \nIf I where a parent I would say 2 is the limit.
If we assume that the maximum possible match is in place it could be 25%. That assumes that brother and sister share 100% (very unlikely unless they are identical twins). Which means each of their kids inherit 50% of the same genes (very unlikely). And one of their kids would get 25% of the original…. It is also entirely possible that there is almost no matching DNA. Unrelated people in families originating half a world apart actually share a great deal of DNA. The unshared DNA that helps us to identify close family relationships is actually a very small portion of the total DNA of a person. ( Full Answer )
All people have diffrent types of DNA (exept 4 indentical twins) but the way that you be able to contrast your DNA and your siblings DNA in to see which one has more of a biological connection to the mother or more a connevcion to the father.
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.
we are all bannas and slugs and apes so they had a three way atsome point
how much a share? well when you share something you would play with something among 2 3 4 5 people etc or use it among 2 3 4 5 peole at a time
I am a boy i shared a room with my sister from when i was born till when i was 11
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.
You would share up to 12.5%. EDIT: NO, that would be a first cousin. A third cousin would share
I'm sure it differs with each species but I know human DNA and chimpanzee DNA only differ by 2% if not less
Life insurance proceeds are payable according to the beneficiary designation made by the insured and that is a part of the insurance policy. As such, the beneficiary can be any person or entity that had an insurable interest in the life of the insured at the time of the policy's inception. Concievab…ly, that can be one or more of the siblings of the person insured. However, the insured is free to change the beneficiary(ies) at any time prior to death. If the insured designates his/her estate as the beneficiary of the policy, upon death, the proceeds are paid to the estate and distributed per the terms of the deceased's Will. If there is no Will, the proceeds, along with other assets of the estate, are distributed according to the laws of intestate successation of the state in which the insured died. ( 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
Perhaps as little as 1/16, but under some nephew/uncle relationships as much as 1/8 relatedness.
Brother or sister it doesn't matter they share an average of 50% of their DNA and identical twins DNA share 100%. Fraternal twins still share on average of 50% of their DNA.
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. In the case of cousins, however, the relationship derives from a single common ancestor, and you can't h…ave half of one common ancestor. ( Full Answer )
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.

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 )
Humans and dogs only share about 25% of the exact same DNA or genome sequence. They also have a different number of chromosomes. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes and dogs have 39 pairs.
Animals don't share DNA with other animals. A virus can inject aDNA fragment into an animal cell, but that won't have anevolutionary effect unless it happens in either a sperm or egg celland in a location of the genome that disrupts it in some way. Bacteria, though not animals, do share DNA with ot…her bacteria andthrough intake from the outer environment. They can gain valuablegenes that would help them survive in the process. ( Full Answer )
Yes, they do. It is a small amount but interesting that we arerelated to grass.
Mitochondrial DNA comes from the mother, so the mother's maternal line and all her children share the samemitochondrial DNA.
