One of the practical matters this discovery resolves is the question of how it is mammals of every species get along with essentially the same genes, arranged in the same sequence, over geologic spans of time.
Buy a clue. Start with "allele."
Buy a second clue. Notice that small genetic differences can make large differences in morphology.

Still, virtually unlimited variation in some basepairs makes little or no difference ~ it depends on which basepairs are flipped (e.g. there's one flip that gives you primal dwarfism, and, to date, it's the only single basepair flip known to provide major changes).
What we have here is a "process" that serves to provide statistical control of genetic quality.
