Adding to the numbers:

The largest E.coli sequence published so far is the 81.5-89.2minute
region [Plunkett et al, NAR 21 (1993) 3391-8] at 324 131 bp ... a mite
bigger than yeast chromosome III at 315 338 bp. The C.elegans project
has finished an even longer sequence from chromosome III at 1 047 088
bp (yes, more than a Mb :-) [ACEDB release 1-22]. The M.leprae
project has sequenced (so far) 9 cosmids, averaging about 38 kb,
giving us about 10% of the genome [MycDB, upcoming release] ...
