Genus given from pole minima

Can the minimum number of singularities on a three dimensional surface within continuous lines (exhaustively mapped over a topological space) help describe the value of its genus?

For instance, think of a globe with two separate poles (singularities) which can be located anywhere on the sphere. The malleable continuous lines may be stretched to accommodate the two poles, but no fewer. This is an example of genus-even.

No poles might be needed for genus-odd shapes as their holes may interchange topologically like their genus-one poles. Each pair of poles (even) corresponds to and transforms into a hole (odd).

When forms of differing genera meld, do they conserve the topological properties of poles and holes?

So, do genera = f(poles)?
