It's actually pretty significant. Every life form on Earth has the same chemical makeup to their DNA. You, me, an ear of corn, an earthworm. Everything. Except for these little guys, who have used the arsenic in their environment and actually incorporated it into their DNA. That is a truly ground breaking discovery.
