Genome size (haplotype)

Value 106 Mbp
Organism Lycophyte Selaginella moellendorffii
Reference Banks et al., The Selaginella genome identifies genetic changes associated with the evolution of vascular plants. Science. 2011 May 20 332(6032):960-3 p.961 right column 2nd paragraphPubMed ID21551031
Method Whole-genome shotgun sequencing
Comments The assembled genome size (212.6 Mbp) is twice that determined by flow cytometry (Wang et al., 2005 PMID 15955246), indicating that the assembled genome includes two haplotypes of ~106 Mbp that are 98.5% identical at the nucleotide level. A deduced haplotype has 22,285 predicted protein-coding genes. For genome size of 85Mbp see BNID 101525
