Comments "The genome of an organism is the complete set of genes specifying how its phenotype will develop (under a certain set of environmental conditions). In this sense, then, diploid organisms (like ourselves) contain two genomes, one inherited from our mother, the other from our father. The table presents a selection of representative genome sizes from the rapidly-growing list of organisms whose genomes have been sequenced."
