Aaargh! This is what I get for trying to incrementally fix arithemetical
mistakes instead of starting over again from scratch.
It appears I have failed to extract any useful additional information
about the number of complex functional adaptations in the brain by
reasoning from the length of the genome. If anyone does manage to do so,
let me know.
