1.The genome has around 3164.7 million nucleotide bases.
2.99.9 % of the nucleotide bases are same in all humans.
3.The largest gene is Dystrophin having 2.4 million bases.
4.Chromosome 1 has most genes (2968) and Y has the least genes (231).
5.Less than 2% of the genome has the coding sequence for proteins.
