Scientists Have Decoded The Great White Shark Genome
It’s an apex predator, one of the most fearsome fish in the sea, and now scientists know just what it’s made of.

Containing roughly one-and-a-half times as much DNA as the human genome, the white shark’s genetic code revealed a wealth of insight — and a few surprises — about what makes these creatures so successful from an evolutionary standpoint.
Sharks have been around a long time.
