description:
The Common Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus), also known as the European Cuckoo, is a widespread summer migrant to Europe and Asia. It is a brood parasite, meaning it lays eggs in other birds' nests; particularly in Dunnock's, Meadow Pipit's, and Eurasian Reed Warbler's nests. These data have been produced as part of the avian phylogenomic project. DNA from the Cuculus canorus was collected in Denmark. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 100X with short reads from a series of libraries with various insert sizes (170bp, 500bp, 800bp, 2kb, 5kb, 10kb and 20kb). The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.15Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 31kb and 3mb respectively. We identified 15,889 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 20kb.
