Comparative cost of RNA-seq vs sequencing full length cDNAs
What kind of organism? Splicing makes using RNA more difficult. Is there a good existing reference genome for you organism (if lacking in annotation)? Do you have a specific goal, such as biofuels, drug production fighting pathogenic or parasitic organism, or do you have X amount of money and want to do the best basic research? The type and depth of sequencing that is most cost efficient will vary with your goals.
Is a minimum size/complexity necessary for an organism to exhibit territoriality?
Without some selective defense of something, I don't see any indication that the small virus behaves territorially. But a virus that infects a virus is still a pretty neat thing.
