This project will determine whether there is a relationship between the genome size and cell nucleus size of organisms. Data about the cell and genome sizes of a sample of amphibian, bird and fish species were recorded in a spreadsheet. Correlation analysis was performed to test the strength and direction of the relationship of these two characteristics for each type of animal (amphibians, birds and fish) and for all the animals combined.
