Hi, I hope the project is going well! I had a few questions. The first is regarding the size of the rhino genome. Second, which reference assembly is being used? Third, how do we know what a sequencing/project would cost if we do not know the genome size ? Sequencing the genome of the one-horned rhino was my dream project. I lived near their hometrack and even the forest dept. at Kaziranga National Park (India), was ready to cooperate. But we did not have good WGS labs nearby. I presented the idea to my PIs and they showed no interest. I shared the idea for my postdoc project, and still I was told, there's no future. I always knew this is the future! Anyway, they still tease and joke about the idea. I showed them how a man from cardiology, driven by passion, gathered a team, raised funds and did exactly that! This is truly inspiring! Thank you!
