Comments P.261 caption beneath table 9.3 "Chromosome sizes are taken from the ENSEMBL Human Map View (http://www.ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Location/Genome). Heterochromatin figures are estimates abstracted from International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium (2004) Nature 431, 931–945. The size of the total human genome is estimated to be about 3.1 Gb, with euchromatin accounting for close to 2.9 Gb and heterochromatin accounting for 200 Mb."
