In Science
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.

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. Humans have 23 ( Full Answer )

How much DNA do humans share with each other?

\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.

What percentage of DNA do humans and chimpanzees share?

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 ( Full Answer )

How much DNA do humans share with a whale?

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.

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.

What percentage of DNA do siblings share?

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 ( Full Answer )

How much DNA Do humans share with cows?

Surprisingly, according to the related link below, domestic bovines (or the colloquial "cow") actually share 80% of genes with humans.

What vegetable shares DNA 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 ( Full Answer )

Is the human race the superior race?

The question lacks context. Without first defining the criteria for superiority, you cannot know the answer to the question.. For example, if we define "superiority" as " Which race of beings can swim the fastest in the ocean unaided by mechanical means ." Then humans will not be superior. If we as ( 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 percentage of DNA do humans share with a dog?

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.

What percentage of DNA do humans share with a cat?

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

What has human DNA?

A human ;) But the human DNA is developed from the zygote, so when the sperm fertilizes the egg in the womb.

How many races are there in the human race?

One. The "human race" refers to the species homo sapiens, otherwise known as humans. Although we all come in different shapes, colors, and sizes; we are all of the same race/species. Officially, there are currently five races: Congoid, Capoid, Mongoloid, Caucasoid and Australoid. Congoids are ( 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 do you find out your race without DNA?

Your question doesn't makes sense.."How do you find race without DNA?" Maybe you could rephrase it to "How do you find your race without a machine with all your DNA?" Something like that....But your first question doesn't makes sense...The only way you can find your race is swobbing a cotton swab in ( Full Answer )

How much DNA do humans share with a chimp?

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.

How is frog DNA different from human DNA?

All the DNA is chemically the same. It is the sequence pattern (the way A, T, G, C organized) would differ from one species to another. The DNA of bacteria from one species to other will differ tremendously if they are distantly related.

Is the DNA of a fruit the same as the DNA of a human?

Chemically DNA from any species is the same. But the things is the sequence of DNA such as AATTTCGAATG for example will not be the same. In fact, the sequence can not be the same from person to person. That is the unique nature of DNA.

How much DNA do you share with chimps?

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.

There are between 2.1 to 2.8 billion Christians in the world (depending upon how many are not recorded in normal statistics for various reasons, eg in China where Christianity is practised in secret because of perecution). The number of the world's population is around 6 billion. Therefore, th ( Full Answer )

How is DNA different from human DNA?

DNA is exactly the same in every species it is found in. It always has a sugar-phosphate backbone and the same four bases - A, T, G and C. The only thing that changes is the number of genes found in the DNA (and the sequence of the bases).

The concluding result of the Chimpanzee and Human Genome project was that human locus contains approximately 150 thousand "additional" base pairs NOT found in chimpanzee chromosome 12 and 13, also known as 2A and 2B.

Yes. I think the number is actually closer to 98% shared. Most of the differences between a bonobo and a human being are not so much that we have different genes (a lot of the 2% difference between bonobos and human genes is trivial) but rather we use the same set of genes differently.
