The smiling axolotl hides a secret: A giant genome

from The New York Times

Scientists have decoded the genome of the axolotl, the Mexican amphibian with a Mona Lisa smile. It has 32 billion base pairs, which makes it 10 times the size of the human genome, and the largest genome ever sequenced. The axolotl, endangered in the wild, has been bred in laboratories and studied for more than 150 years. more
