Comments "The DNA amount in the unreplicated gametic nucleus of an organism is referred to as its C-value, irrespective of the ploidy level of the taxon. The Plant DNA C-values Database currently contains data for 8510 plant species [as of April 30th 2015]." The plant with the largest genome size, Fritillaria assyrica, has c value of 127.4 which is equivalent to 124.6Gbp (multiplying C-value by 0.978Gb). Note- Lozovskaya et al., 1999 PMID 10734601 p. 201 right column give value of 123Gb for this species.
