Hierarchical gene sharing between humans and other
groups of creatures
from other Primates, including the Great Apes (Chimps,
Gorillas, and Organutans) by fewer than 1% of their
genes. Humans share an additional 22% with other
vertebrates species, and an aggregate of just under half
with invertebrate species as well. A third of all genes
are common to all eukaryotes.
