Hi! How are you?
1.Does any one know maize genome size? I noticed it's bigger than that
of Arabidopsis by 70-100 times. Is it right?

2. Has any body tried to do maize genomic Southern blot using
DIG-labelled probes (either by random priming or by PCR)?

Your advice will make my graduate student life much easier.
Thank you in advance
