Biochemistry v. Morphology

New research continues to substantiate a key observation about the nature of the genetic code: A large share of our genetic instructions go into establishing a baseline biochemistry of life, while a relatively small share of our genetic code goes into the morphological traits that distinguish a man from a mouse from a jellyfish. This explains, in part, why "macro-evolution" as intelligent design advocates try to label evolutionary steps that involve major changes in morphology, are less amazing than they seem.
