Slide 16: Today’s classification is done using DNA sequencing What is DNA? Instructions that allow you to build yourself A, T, C, G Slide 17: What interesting results have been found using DNA sequencing? Our DNA is 98% the same as a chimpanzee Our DNA is 60% the same as a banana In the medical field, diseases can be traced to exact locations on your genes In the forensic field, tracing individuals has led to better criminal prosecution Slide 18: How different Life can be… 99.9% of species that have ever existed are now extinct.
