A team of researches inserted random DNA sequences into E. coli and then tested to see if those random DNA sequences increased fitness. To their surprise, 25% of the random DNA sequences were beneficial as either RNA molecules or as proteins.

25% beneficial
52% detrimental
23% neutral

Fascinating eh?

Enjoy
