We share about 50% of our genes with the banana plant, which is not the same as sharing 50% of our DNA with banana. And not really surprising when you consider: You can eat a banana and use the same stuff it does in much of the same ways. As an alien life form says in an Isaac Asimov short story, "Proteins are proteins."
