The Animal Genome Size Database is a catalogue of published genome size estimates for vertebrate and invertebrate animals.[1] It was created in 2001 by Dr. T. Ryan Gregory of the University of Guelph in Canada. As of September 2005, the database contains data for over 4,000 species of animals. A similar database, the Plant DNA C-values Database (C-value being analogous to genome size in diploid organisms) was created by researchers at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in 1997.
