I'm trying to get a more accurate value for the genome size and total
number of genes for various species in the genome mapping projects.

Could anyone provide more accurate figures for any parts of this table?

Species        Genome size       No. of genes

E.coli            5 Mbp              ?
Yeast            15 Mbp              ?
Nematode        100 Mbp              ?
Drosophila      300 Mbp            15,000
Mouse          3000 Mbp        50,000 - 100,000
Human          3000 Mbp        50,000 - 100,000
