Not necessarily. All we really know is that genes code for protein.
Protein synthesis, epigenetics, a whole universe of environmental
interaction and top-down influence contribute to the overall
development of a physical body. It's like saying that tcp/ip packets
give rise to YouTube content.

Our fingers are natural computers if we use them that way. Computation
isn't necessarily a causally efficacious principle in the universe. I
think that it's a sensory theme which is instrumental in maintaining
solid objects through time, but that's about it. It has no feeling,
meaning, power, or desire. The lowest, most common end of what we are
looks like a brain, and computation is what goes on when we look at
matter with matter.

The brain computes, but it is also a collection of living organism. An
electronic computer computes but it is not a living organism, and it
is an inorganic assembly. The commonality is paper thin, and the
difference extends back billions of years.
