description:
The American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis)), as the name suggests, is endemic to North America, specifically to the South-East United States, where it inhabits wetlands on the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to Florida, and in the Northern Gulf of Mexico west to Texas. These data have been produced as part of the Crocodilian Genomes Project. Genomic DNA was isolated using blood from two wild-caught individuals. Briefly, the alligator data consisted of Illumina sequences from five libraries ranging from 5.5 to 88.7x coverage. These reads were assembled using AllPaths-LG with default parameters. Legacy data from 21 fully sequenced BACs, 1309 BAC-end read pairs, and RNASeq data, were also used to aid the assembly.
