Comparison: How Similar Are We To Animals (Genetic Similarity)

Infinite Comparison
Every cell in the body of living organisms contain deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA. It's the self-replicating material that passes on hereditary traits from one generation to the next. The information is encoded in the sequencing of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T). When you talk about humans sharing DNA with each other and with other animals, you're basically talking about this sequencing pattern, because all DNA contains the same four chemical bases. Research shows that 99.9 percent of the genetic information in DNA is common to all human beings. Humans share more than 50 percent of their genetic information with plants and animals in general. Here is a list of animals along with the percentage of their genetic similarities with humans. DISCLAIMER: This probability/comparison is based on public data, surveys, public comments & discussions and approximate estimations that might be subjected to some degree of error.
