The great importance of small differences
By Jeya Chelliah B.Vsc Ph.D
Most genomes in human beings are alike. As a result, a somewhat small number of genetic differences has produced the many variations within the human species in characteristics such as skin color, weight and height. Genes themselves control only part of these characteristics. The intricate relationship between genes and the environment, and between multiple genes, increases the difficulty of understanding and quantifying the human phenotypic variation. Genome analysis and sequencing reveals that only one out of thousands of nucleotides differ in the genomes of two individuals. .
