The function of most of our DNA is unknown ... may be "junk DNA" ... but
mutations can still occur in this inter-genic DNA and be inherited. Thus,
is it safe to say that 'junk DNA' is present to allow organisms to evolve.
OR is it most likely that the DNA does have specific functions, and that
we just don't know what they are yet?
