Genetics Fun Facts

Did you know?It takes about eight hours for one of your cells to completely copy its DNA

In that eight hours your heart will beat almost 29,000 times if you are resting65,000 times if you are exercising for the eight hours.

Did you know?If you were to stretch out the DNA from your 46 chromosomes in one cell and lay them end to end, the DNA would stretch over 6 FEET in length

Did you know?If the total DNA in one person were laid in a straight line, it would stretch from the earth to the sun and back over 30 times!

It is 93 million miles from the earth to the sun!

So the stretch would be over 5.4 BILLION miles!Did you know?You could fit one thousand nuclei across the period at the end of this sentence.

You could fit one million threads of DNA across the period at the end of this sentence.

Did you know?Humans are 99.9 percent genetically identical

You and I are only different by .1 percent! What?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Did you know?Our genes are remarkably similar to those of other life forms.

We share 98% of our genes with chimpanzees, 90% with mice, 85% with zebra fish, 21% with worms, and 7% with bacteria! Ewwww!
