description:
The microbats constitute the suborder Microchiroptera within the order Chiroptera (bats). They are most often referred to by their scientific name. Other English names are "insectivorous bats", "echolocating bats", "small bats" or "true bats". All these names are somewhat inaccurate, because not all microbats feed on insects, and some of them are larger than small megabats. We applied a whole genome shotgun strategy and next-generation sequencing technologies using an Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform to sequence the genome of an individual adult male M. davidii. In order to lower the risk of non-randomness, we constructed 26 paired-end libraries sequenced on 26 lanes, with insert sizes of about 250 base pairs (bp), 500 bp, 800 bp, 2 kb, 5 kb, 10 kb and 20 kb. In total, we generated about 237.2 Gb (118.6x coverage) of high quality sequence for the assembly. The genome was de novo assembled by SOAPdenovo. The final contig size and N50 were 1.91 Gb and 13.2 kb, respectively. The total scaffold size and N50 were 2.09 Gb and 3.39 Mb, respectively.
