Re: 25000 genes


>1) A. Thaliana has but five Chromosomes.   Diploid Hosta have 60.  
>Why the odd number for Arabidopsis?

The "five" chromosomes in Arabidopsis is the haploid number N = 5; the 
diploid number, 2N = 10.  Hostas have N = 30.

>If H. 'Cheatin' Heart' has a tetraploid L3 and a diploid L1,

I thought Ben told us that hostas only have a two layer system, so 
there would not be any L3 layer.
