2008 National DNA Day Online Chatroom Transcript

ok solo diga como es el ADN de los animales
     Belen Hurle, Ph.D.: Generating data for use in developing and refining computational tools for comparing genomic sequence from multiple vertebrate species. El ADN de los animales y el de las plantas es como el de las personas. Esta escrito utilizando las mismas bases A, C, G, T y la misma estructura de doble helice. Los animales tambien tienen chromosomas como nosotros. Lo que varia es el porcentaje de similitud con el DNA humano. Por ejemplo, un chimpanze es 98% identico a un humano y un perro es solo un 85%.
