Cat genome’s ‘dark matter’ may hold clues to our health

from futurity

o horatio ...

naw seriously

out of the 3 billion base pairs of DNA that make up the genome of mammals, only 2% of the DNA is coded into proteins that help our bodies perform natural functions. “Dark matter” DNA, or the 98% of DNA with no obvious functions, may play a regulatory role in turning certain genes on or off, but researchers don’t yet fully understand

98% has no apparent function, at least there is symmetry
