Humans and Apes

95% the same right? Well, 95% of 1%...

This is something I've known, but it is good to see it again.

Key points:
"compare the entire genome, not just a selected small fraction of the gene-containing portion known to code for proteins, which in the human genome is only 1 percent of the DNA." (emphasis added)
I'll not comment on the irony of applying an analysis of material created by intelligent agents (books) to analyzing DNA...
