with a few words, the purpose seem to be the one of storage . The non-coding DNA forms 98% of your DNA - and this gave room for a lot of speculations and talk. However, it looks likw we are getting closer in understanding the purpose of this non-coding part of our DNA:




storing the building materials for important proteins, so that when the cell places an order, the materials are released, allowing proteins to be produced.

The other 98% of the genome also plays various roles in gene expression, and provides a buffer of sorts against harmful mutations.

The stuff might not directly code for a protein, but it does need to be there, although it's actual sequence may not be important.
