Thomas Mailund's latest post on the mouse genome harks back to a recent point raised by Sandra Porter: When is a genome sequence actually completed?

"Oh well, in any case the distinction between a draft and complete genome sequence is a bit artificial anyway. It is really only a matter of degree," Mailund concludes.
