Our DNA is almost the same as most mammals. If that is so, what makes humans human and apes an ape? For the longest time we believed it was genetics but we now know the genetics are similar so it can’t be just in the genes. Epigenetics would seem to be what makes us what we are. It plays different genes differently in different mammals. This will be an interesting field to follow over the coming years.
