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.
While plants and humans are very different, they do have quite a bit of DNA similarities. Humans share approximately 40-50% of DNA with cabbage. Humans share over 60% of DNA with insects, and 98% with chimps.
Humans share very little with a potato. Chromosomes are a collection of DNA woven around protein. A chromosome may contain as many as 100,000 to billions of nucleotides in one chain. Chimpanzee and humans share a very SIMILAR DNA pattern, where as a potato and a human being don't. So although they both have 48 chromosomes, their DNA STUCTURE is vastly different.
There has been a lot of research through the Human Genome Project to determine this. 1.5 percent of DNA in the body is made of Genes.
The human DNA codes for proteins through transcription and replication of the genes. Only about 2 percent of the DNA is used for coding.
dude I'm high

primates share about 95% of our DNA
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.
Human beings and chimpanzees have 98% of their DNA in common.
they are 95% to 90% DNA like us. we are very similar to them.
No. Although chimps are closely related they are not human.
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.
More than 98%, according to Jonathan Marks Department of Anthropology University of California, Berkeley
