Scientists deconstruct one of the myths of biological innovation

While the number of coding genes that produce proteins in humans has dwindled to 20,000 in recent years, scientists think that the dimensions of the proteome could be larger. This diversity of proteins has become one of the main sources of complexity in mammals, including humans.
