I can understand that concern, Larry although I disagree.

DNA in and of itself is not fundamentally different between plants and animals in terms of its structure and composition. It still consists of the four nucleotide bases arranged in different patterns to create genes, so on that scale I see no difference. On a cellular level there are fundamental differences between plants and animals (cell structure is vastly different) but what forms those cells is exactly the same. On that basis, I don't see any profound difference.
