Same number of nucleotides??
I wouldn't be too pleased if they started to define a species as individuals having the same number of chromosomes and the same number of nucleotides for the simple reason that you find human individuals with a deleted segment in comparison to their parents, or maybe a different number of trinucleotide repeats. Are we to start dividing up the entire human population based on the number of nucleotides they have on each chromosome?
