... in response to What is Junk DNA?
  1. James Rawles James Rawles United States says:

    Just because 98% of our genome does not code for protein does not mean it does not encode important information. Our overall gross anatomical structure, from the appearance of our facial features, our internal organs, to our overall body size and layout, is clearly inherited. Where does that 'blueprint' reside? I presume its somehow encoded into DNA. Our genome holds about 1.5 giga bytes of information. I expect it would take a pretty sizeable chunk of that to encode our 3D anatomy! How the information might be actuated is a mystery to me.
