DNA Does Contain Coded Information...

Japanese scientists encode famous formula in the DNA of bacteria - read the report here. Noticing that DNA encodes a message amounts to noticing specified complexity. Indeed, even without scientists inserting their own messages DNA already contains specified complexity!

Note that infering design from DNA doesn't tell you who the designer was. Suppose the Japanese scientist is right and that in millions of years an alien scientist might find one of these bacteria and notice it has Einstein's forumula in it and infer intelligent design. But suppose the alien's fellow scientists dismiss the discovery by saying 'Infering design from biology is religion not science'... How ironic would that be?
