Benny the Beaver, the Oregon State University mascot, has 26,200 genes in its genetic code — about 33 percent more inheritable information than humans, OSU researchers say. The scientists know this because of a fall 2015 crowd-funding drive brought in $20,001 from 103 donors to pay for gene sequencing studies on the beaver. OSU recently announced the sequencing is complete.
