Sequencing the draft genome of a non model organism is now relatively simple and cost effective. While it provides precious resource for evolutionary and comparative studies, especially for ecologically relevant questions, it has important drawbacks. The round table will allow the discussion of some of these issues, such as the complexity of analyzing very large genomes, the correct estimate of heterozygosity, and the lack of sister species for proper evolutionary comparisons and inferences as well as for accurate gene modelling and ontology. Participants who are in the process, or are willing, to sequence their favorite species are invited to share their experience.
