As per today's Telcon, does any person with genomics knowledge (that
includes you too Carole) have estimates for the following numbers:

1. How many bio-molecular and organism-anatomical-functional entities
and records (broad sense) are currently accessible through the web
(excluding LIMS entities, such as samples, for now)?

2. Does this number grow substantially when it is allowed to include
every variant of protein, gene, etc. per species (i.e., not instances of
real molecules or organisms)?

I think these would be quite useful for other W3C members to be aware
of, since some proposed mechanisms would require their global
