Interesting Fact:

Humans are 99.9% identical -- only .1% of our genetic makeup differs. The DNA sequences from two individuals of the same species are highly similar, differing by only about one nucleotide in 1,000 or about 3 million base pairs. This .1% difference in genetic makeup is responsible for us having different eye colors, hair colors, shapes and sizes.
