I was reading that humans and chimps share 98-99% of the same DNA sequence but I also read humans and chimps only share around 20% of the same proteins. Also, 45% of the human genome is transposable elements, It's 42% reverse transposons and 3% DNA transposons.
So, I wanted to know the difference between humans and chimps when it comes to transposable elements, especially reverse transposons.
Eighty percent of proteins are different between humans and chimpanzees. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15716009 and Retrotransposons - In mammals, almost half the genome (45% to 48%) is transposons or remnants of transposons. Around 42% of the human genome is made up of retrotransposons, while DNA transposons account for about 2–3%. [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrotransposon]2
