    Maybe this is why U. gibba is so successful?

    "The U. gibba genome is the smallest ever to be sequenced from a complex, multicellular plant." (4th paragraph)

    This is incorrect. U. gibba has a genome sequence of roughly 80 Mbp whereas Genlisea margaretae's sequence is 63.4 Mbp, another plant G. aurea beats U. gibba with 63.6 Mbp.

    ...time to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    I saw this article...pretty cool stuff, though I wonder why the plant does this. It doesn't really make sense to me that the plant could be cleaning out its DNA only because of natural selection.

    Yet another reason to find the Utricularia genus so interesting.
