What about the fact that gene expression will have extremely different large-scale results depending on the environment the genes are situated in? The fact that a fertilized human egg grows into a human shape within the womb of a human mother (or an environment almost identical to it) is a necessary part of the process, as is the nutrition transferred to the growing fetus through the umbilical cord.

Also, how precisely does one measure how much information is "necessary to transform a fertilized egg into a human body"?
