The human species shares a lot of similarities with a lot of other organic material and other animals that might surprise you. You might have known that humans were similar to chimpanzees but what about something like a cabbage? From people with some of the rarest genetic mutations to humans sharing similar genetics with bananas, here are the craziest facts about DNA

6. Cosmic Double Helix
If a human’s dna is the building block of their life and it takes a shape of a double helix, could the building blocks of the universe also take the same shape? Maybe in this case. A mysterious galaxy was discovered which features a double helix shape and this is the first time it’s been seen in the cosmos. While many galaxies like the milky way might take a the shape of a spiral, but this one here displays super giant planets, dust and other gases creating the DNA shape. Astronomers believe the shape is due to it being nearly perpendicular to a blackhole

5. Hypertrichosis
Also known as werewolf syndrome, this rare genetic mutation affects one in a billion people, meaning there may only be 7 people on this planet with this mutations. It’s due to an abnormality in the x chromosome and will flip on the hair growing gene at a young age. in In fact only 50 cases of this genetic disorder have been documented since the middle ages. This despite this genetic mutation these brothers from Mexico, in this photo seem to not let it bother them. This causes rapid, thick, hair to grow all over their body where most people wouldn’t like on their face. We don’t even think feminists can handle this type of hair growth! This photo here shows a woman named Alice Elizabeth Doherty who exhibited signs of hypertrichosis at a young age. She was exhibited as a sideshow attraction known as the minnesota wholly girl

4. Red Hair DNA
Red hair is the world rarest hair color with less than 2 percent of the world’s population having red hair. It’s a recessive gene known as mc1r meaning that both parents must carry the ginger gene in order to have the ginger baby. Even if they do both carry it, there’s only about a 25 percent chance they’ll come out that way. The region of scotland has the most redheads with 13 percent and ireland comes in at 2nd with 10 percent. If you decide at some point in your life that you wouldn’t want to have a kid with red hair, it might be best to pair up with a member of the asian ethnicity since it’s extremely unlikely that they carry the gene. Some times if one parent has it but the other parent doesn’t, it might result in a reddish beard or red hair somewhere else!

3. Crispr-Cas9
Modern scientists seem to be extremely fascinated with DNA and our genetics in modern times and maybe it could be the answer for many issues. Crispr Cas9 is basically a new reliable way to make precise and targeted changes to the genome of living cells and this is quite the huge discovery for biomedical researchers. Once cas9 is introduced, scientists have to option to insert, or delete different genetics. Not only is it inexpensive, it’s effective and they don’t believe it will have an effect on non-targeted genomes. However, although it is improved, it’s not 100% accurate and sometimes they can miss. For human cells the targeting efficiencies range anywhere reach 70-80 percent as opposed to older established methods.

2. The Tree Man Syndrome
The scientific name which is a little tricky to pronounce (epidermodysplasia verruciformis) is a genetic disease you certainly don’t wanna get. It’s caused from an inactivating ph mutation which play a crucial role in regulating the distribution of zinc in the cell nuclei. With this vital vitamin, the HPV virus will run rampant causing scaly macules and papules all over the hands and feet, resulting in bark-like skin. This extremely rare disorder causes scaly macules and papules causes to spread all over his body. The tree, bark-like growth that grows from most commonly their hands, give them the nickname Tree Man. Some of the growths can weigh up to 15 pounds total. This skin condition is often inherited and the photo you see here is from a case in Bangladesh where a man had a total of 11 pounds of these root like lesions on his hands.

    At 0:56 – you said microchondrial DNA. What is the world is microchondrial DNA? I think you meant mitochondrial DNA. I was going to watch more of your videos but your credibility with me is shot. I did like a dog video of yours I just watched.

    Love your videos

    I was excited for this video until this guy started talking, I just can’t stand his voice and I don’t mean to be rude

    Fun fact some scientist have created DNA that has 8 bases (normal DNA has 4) which is stable and could be used as code for microbots

    One of the pitfalls of 'learning by kilobytes'. This vid like many others, tends to leap to many out-there hypotheses from the few skerricks of scientific information presented. Btw, you only mention the two male winners of the Nobel Prize for discovering DNA, however, they were only able to to do because of the work of Franklin. "It's commonly believed that James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the double helix shape of DNA. But in fact, they based their work on one of their colleagues at King's College in London – Rosalind Franklin, an x-ray diffraction expert whose images of DNA proteins in the early 1950s revealed a helix shape."

    Seriously, did I hear him say "MICRO-condrial?" I've been hearing this term used most cop shows with science labs for YEARS and it's "MITRO-condrial." And why is this adenoidal auctioneer doing so many Talltanic videos? EDIT: Later, talking about European men sharing DNA with King Tut, he refers to the "CAUCUS Mountains." (Another annoying speech pattern is his habit of dropping syllables.)

    This is unfortunate. I dont watch anericaneye videos because of his screachy voice, but this is a topic i love

    I would love it if you listed your sources in the description of your vids. It would do a lot for your channels integrity. 👍

    The "glow fish" (man made by injecting anenome goo in the embryos of zebra fish) color lasts only 1 life cycle. Meaning it is not transferred to the next generation of those fish and poses no threat to other species or the environment.

    Your DNA contains your genetic instructions. Your DNA is more complicated than anything else on earth. And the information of the DNA is independent from its structure. That means it did not—and could not—have randomly evolved, any more than a computer program that runs the world could evolve out of computer hardware. Someone carefully created your DNA.

    As Psalm 139:14 says, we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (KJV). God’s fingerprint is on every cell of our bodies. You can’t get more intimate than that.

    Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.

    Your DNA is the fingerprint of God on you! God is your creator! Knowing that, the question is, aree you right with God through His Son Jesus Christ? If not, it is time.

    God desires for you to spend eternity with Him, however, SIN has seperated you from God and from entering Heaven (If you have ever lied, you have sinned, making you are a sinner). That is why God sent His Son Jesus Christ to save you, to rescue you from the punishment of sin, eternal Hell. You can not get to Heaven on your own accord… Your good deeds, being a good person, your church, your money… Can not save you… Only Jesus Christ can save you!!!

    Go to Jesus Christ with a repentant & humble heart. Receive Jesus as your Lord & Savior. Repent of your life away from God, give your life to Jesus Christ.

    Jesus Christ, I come to you a sinner, I repent of all my sins and ask for your forgiveness. I believe you are the Son of God, that you went to the cross, died in my place, paying my sin debt and that you were buried & rose on the 3rd day to everlasting life. Jesus, right now, I choose to receive you as my Lord and my Savior, trusting in you alone for my salvation. I surrender my life to you and ask for your will to be done. I invite your Holy Spirit to come into my heart to make me more like you. Thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you for filling me with the Holy Spirit and for your gift of eternal life in Heaven. Amen!
