The haploid genome size or C-value
of Biomphalaria glabrata
Gregory, T.R. (2003). Genome size estimates for two important freshwater molluscs, the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) and the schistosomiasis vector snail (Biomphalaria glabrata). Genome 46: 841-844 (abstract).
Feulgen-staining and measurement of the C-value were kindly performed (March 2002) by
