Could anyone tell me what percentage of the total RNA population is represented by 
poly-A RNA in Drosophila? Or where to find such information (it's not in the Grey Book). 
I don't need to know exactly - just whetherit is about 2% as in plants or closer to the 5% 
average for most mammalian species.
