Genome Protocol mixing of smaller genomes

This is just an idea but if I understand correctly the Genome kit is optimised to the human genome (~3.3Gb) and there is a problem with running smaller non-human genomes below 400Mb. Could you combine two or more unrelated genomes in one sample to come up to the aboutthe same 3.3Gb of the human. Then I guess you would have a bioinformatics headache to separate them after, but technically would it work?

I don't know the answer, but I can speculate a bit.


I suspect the unrelated genomes would have to be sufficiently divergent from each other that post-sequencing assembly can be done unambiguously. I hope someone at 10x can comment on this, because Tom's idea seems seductively easy...
