The widely-reported figure of 98% genetic similarity between chimpanzees and humans is misleading, since it refers only to the coding sequences: the parts of the DNA that actually get turned into protein.
When one looks at non-coding sequences (so-called junk DNA), a different picture emerges: human junk DNA is no more similar to chimpanzee junk DNA than it is to pig, dog, yeast, or oak DNA.
