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.
