Shapiro....James...not Robert...has said the genome is likely 100% functionalBy the way Russell, project ENCODE originally claimed 80% functionality. Later they pared that down to a much much smaller 10%, which of course the creatards ignored, and raised there potential to 20%.
Hmm, that was the same figure that was given in another article that I linked earlier for HTS.
Project ENCODE jumped the gun a bit when they claimed 80% functionality. Still they found quite a bit more functionality than the original 1 or 1.5% found of the very active genes.
