The ability to sequence genomes was a great accomplishment. But there is something over and above genes.
Perhaps it won’t be long before everyone, critics included, looks at the “junk DNA” concept in the rear-view mirror.
That shouldn’t really be too surprising because the fact that humans and dogs can share emotions is part of what forms bonds between us.
