RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN A research team has mapped the great white shark's genome and found the keys to many of its special adaptations.

The great white shark's genome contains large amounts of information.

They have 41 pairs of chromosomes while humans only have 23.

The results were published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

These showed that a set of genes involved in wound healing and another set involved with blood clotting had evolved significantly among sharks, allowing them to recover from injuries much faster than other organisms. Findings also showed that great whites have genetic adaptations that help them preserve a stable genome.

The same genes that are involved in genome stability also have the ability to fight cancer.
