You need to have the total size of the genome determined, both 
genetically and physically.  Use the most recent genetic map of the 
organism to get an idea of the genetic size and there should be some 
data on the total physical size of the genome published somewhere.  I 
work with plants, so I couldn't even give you a ballpark figure.  
Probably somewhere between 100 Kbp to 4 Mbp.  Good luck!
