Are there any DNA base sequences that are fully conserved between the genomes of all humans?

That is, they don't differ throughout the entire population. I understand of course that we can't DNA sequence every human, so by "fully" I mean there's an incredibly small probability of there being a mutation retained in a living individual.Also by the genome I'm referring to the consensus of all the cells composing in the individual.I guess my question is really, where are the crucially important sections of DNA that are simply unmodifiable without being incompatible with life?
