New Delhi, Apr 29 (PTI) Scientists have found that at least 10 per cent of the human genome is highly conserved across species, with many of these regions occurring outside of protein-coding genes.

They also found that more than 4,500 elements are almost perfectly conserved across more than 98 percent of the species studied.

The findings are part of a series of studies published in the journal Science by 150 researchers across seven time zones, including the US and Sweden, forming the Zoonomia Project.
