	A simple map.... No, it's a colection of data that is express
under circonstances. THe difficulty is not to decode that data (for us),
it is to understand the mechanisms of interaction between the proteins
and higher structures and the data (the genome). The level of complexity
in interactions, give the level of complexity in evolution (or about).


P.S.: The neural network is NOT coded in the genome. It results of
interactions and stimuli that are interpreted regarding the genome.
P.P.S.: All what I wrote is a big reduction of the reality.
P.P.S.: So much newsgroup? well so FollowUp-To: talk.origins (sorry if
I don't read this group...)
