comment Accuracy of genome size estimation by flow cytometry
@JeremyKemball No, it's not near an integer multiple, so it's not a ploidy issue. The reasoning behind the k-mer analysis is to identify a sequence that occurs once in the genome and count how many times it occurs as a proxy for coverage. Since that unique sequence is unknown, we instead examine k-mer distributions and look for the mode in those distributions.

Thanks for sharing @Sanalphatau. Rather than providing a link-only answer, we typically ask community members to provide a brief summary or excerpt of the salient point(s) from the linked material (see biology.stackexchange.com/help/referencing). If for any reason your link gets broken in the future, this answer would become useless without any additional info.

comment What is most simple eukaryotic genome?
In case you were unaware, you can (and are encouraged!) go back and edit the text of your original question. We're not trying to condemn you for the way you asked the question, just providing suggestions for how you can clarify and improve the question, for your benefit and ours.

comment What is most simple eukaryotic genome?
I have to agree with @MattDMo, this question is meaningless in its current state (which is why I downvoted it and voted to close it). The problem would be much better if you were to clarify a few things. For example, what do you mean by "most simple DNA molecule"? Are you using the term "information" in the vernacular sense or in the theoretical sense? And if by "exists today" you really meant, "naturally occurring in eukaryotic cells", then it's better to say what you really mean. Addressing these concerns will help us as a community address your question meaningfully.
