Database Of Genome Sizes
While gathering data for a lecture on sequence analysis we became aware of
the great interest in the research community for a comprehensive list of
(estimated) genome sizes for different organisms. The purpose of this
database is to provide such a list.
Sources of information
The genome sizes that we provide have been collected from the scientific
literature and personal communications. Whenever possible the reference
is listed. Alternative estimates exist for many uncompleted genomes. In such
cases the newest reference will be quoted in the first room followed by other,
less recent estimates.
