The differences in appearance, physiology, and behavior among the four species are determined by only one to two percent difference in the DNA sequences. Moreover, chimpanzees are as different from gorillas as humans are, just in slightly different ways. Against this background of the genetic similarity of humans to the other great apes, how much variation can there be among humans?

Less efficient techniques to introduce novel DNA into target organisms involve bombardment by a "gene gun" which "fires" DNA-coated tungsten microprojectiles into the receptor tissue, microinjection by fine needles, and facilitated uptake of DNA by receptor cells. Table 1 describes these methods, some applications, and the regulatory issues they raise. Developing more crop-specific plant transformation systems is another rapidly advancing area. Worldwide in the 1990s, more than 120 species in 35 families can be transformed, and no species is classified as recalcitrant to gene transfer and regeneration.
