LONDON (Reuters) - It's small and furry and doesn't look anything like a human but the genetic blueprint of the mouse published on Wednesday showed there isn't much difference between mice and men.

Both have about 30,000 genes and share the bulk of them, while 90 percent of genes linked to diseases in humans are similar to those in mice.

"We share 99 percent of our genes with mice, and we even have the genes that could make a tail," said Dr Jane Rogers, of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge, England....

MD you changed your Avatar hope he does not mind being presented on this site


Recently heard we also have a lot in common with Bananas
This is actually true we share some percentage of genetic information with them.

Yes, mice have a lot in common with us this is one of
the reasons we experiment so much on them.

i've heard there isnt much difference between humans and watermelons. most of our genes maybe similiar but its a matter of how our genes are being used that makes us look different, etc. etc.

I have heard from a few genetic scientists that there is a gap in the human dna coad and this is also the same with many plant's and animals. This could be by Symogenesis is so successfull.
