The C-Value Paradox

Abstract

The C-value paradox concerns apparent incongruities in the relationship between genome size, number of proteins synthesized, and organismal complexity. Particularly puzzling has been the large size of eukaryotic genomes relative to the amount of information needed to code for all synthesized proteins. Advances in molecular biology are described that clarify some aspects of the paradox.
