    EXCERPT

    "Utricularia gibba is a carnivorous plant that uses a specialized bladder to suck in bugs like a vacuum cleaner. What makes the plant particularly noteworthy for geneticists, however, is the fact that 97 percent its genome is comprised of actual genes.

    "'The big story is that only 3 percent of the bladderwort's genetic material is so-called 'junk' DNA,' saidÔÇ»study researcher Victor Albert, a biology professor from the SUNY University at Buffalo."
