It seems to me that there is an error here.  To generate the percentage of
the S. cerevisiae genome that is publically available, column 7 should be
divided by column 4 and not column 3.  That calculation lowers the
percentage of publically available sequences to 43%.  What was calculated
is the percentage of the already sequenced DNA that is publically
available.
