The largest complete sequence published to date is Yeast Chromosome III,
weighing in at over 300,000 bp.  More than 1/2 of the 4,700,000bp E.coli
genome has been sequenced.  The complete lambda sequence (along with T7)
has been around since the mid-80's, and at least 5 chloroplast genomes
(tobacco, rice, liverwort, a parasitic flowering plant, and euglena) have
been done (at 120,000+ bp in most of these).  Several large human viruses
(such as cytomegalovirus) have been fully sequenced.
