description:
The Crested Ibis (Nipponia nippon) is the only member of the genus Nipponia and also known as the Japanese Crested Ibis (Toki). Originally widespread across China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Russia, the species has now disappeared from most of these places, and the last wild Crested Ibis in Japan reportedly died in October 2003. These data have been produced as part of the avian phylogenomic project. DNA from the Nipponia nippon was collected in China. We sequenced the 1.6 Gb genome to a depth of approximately 105X 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 totaled 1.17 Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 22 kb and 5.4 mb respectively. We identified 16,756 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 19.4 kb.
