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 differences 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.

Are ape and human DNA the same?

Human and ape DNA are remarkably similar. In fact chimpanzees are so closely related to us (around 98-99 percent DNA relatedness) that many scientists are suggesting that the genus Panshould be scrapped and moved to the Homo genus.

Do you share DNA with your dad's cousin twice removed?

You share some DNA with everyone to whom you are related. Since you have a common ancestor with your father's cousin twice removed, you are related and share DNA. More broadly, every human being has large amounts of DNA that are shared with every other human being. That is what makes us humans, as distinct from chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas or mice.
