Human genome count disputed

How many genes does it take to make a person? Well, maybe not many more than it takes to make a small plant. That's the rather humbling indication, anyway, from some recent estimates for one of the most basic numbers in biology. For years, the usual guess has been that there are around 60,000 to 100,000 genes in the human "genome," the collection of DNA that every person carries. That compares pretty impressively to the 25,500 genes in the small flowering plant called Arabidopsis thaliana or thale cress.
