35 Astounding Photos That Shows the Strength of Genes


Genes are the basic physical and functional unit of heredity. They are made up of DNA and most children share 50% of their DNA with each parent. So, the genetic correlation can be estimated from resemblance among the parents and a child. Most of it is the chance of mixing the paternal and maternal genes in different proportions. In fact, sometimes the resemblance is so definite that the child looks like an identical twin with one of the parent.


Understanding the strength of genes doesn’t always require that you have to do a Ph.D. in biology or read all the extensive scientific knowledge.  Don’t worry, folks! We’ll help you see their power in another way. Once you take a look at the curated selection of photos below, the concept will all become quite clear. We bet these photos will shock you like no other because it’s hard to believe some of these similarities. Scroll on peeps and enjoy!
