description:
Available here is the first draft genome sequence of the Tibetan ground tit (Pseudopodoces humilis) also known as Hume’s Groundpecker. This bird is native to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) or ‘the roof of the world’, which has become a focus for many biological studies due to the extreme environmental conditions, and the genetic mechanisms of high-altitude adaptation has never been studied. Controversy also exists regarding the ground tit’s phylogeny – formerly thought to be part of the Corvidae family, recent phylogenetic analysis have determined this to not be the case; however, because the whole genome sequence of the tit and other close avian species are still unavailable , there is no definite conclusion as of yet. A 1.04 Gb assembled draft genome sequence was generated that covered 95.4% of the whole genome. The scaffold N50 and contig N50 values were 16.3 Mb and 164.7 Kb respectively. High accuracy at the sequencing level was ensured, where the average sequencing depth of the ground tit assembly was 96×, and 99% of the assembly had at least 20× coverage. This data contributes to the study of avian evolutionary history and provides new insights into the tit’s adaptation to extreme environmental conditions.
