A chimp may share 98% of its DNA…

… geneticist Steve Jones sounds a strong cautionary note: ‘A chimp may share 98 percent of its DNA with ourselves but it is not 98 per cent human: it is not human at all—it is a chimp. And does the fact that we have genes in common with a mouse, or a banana say anything about human nature? Some claim that genes will tell us what we really are. The idea is absurd.’
