If memory serves me correctly there is some frog with more genes than human beings have.
A railroad boxcar has more metal than an automobile, but i would say the automobile is a more sophisticated machine than the freight car.
Recent findings show the non-coding (junk) DNA that is not a part of any gene has effects on organisms.

I have no idea what this "expert" is on about, any first year biology lecturer at university can tell you that his full of ****. Yeast, has around 6000 genes.
