    Am I correct in thinking this is the first non-avian sauropsid genome to be fully sequenced? Wish we also had a sequenced nuclear genome for Alligator mississippiensis, Sphenodon punctatus, and Trachemys scripta.

    Correct you are. With the 10,000 Genomes Initiative, hopefully there will be more soon.
