Abstract

Abstract The concept of ‘organismal complexity’ has had a chequered career in genetics, with no rigorous operational definition available for the term. The recent finding that Drosophila melanogaster has more than four thousand fewer genes than the nematode forces a re-examination of whether gene number, in itself, can be taken as any real guide to complexity.
