GigaScience Database. RIS BibTeX Text

Domestic yaks (Bos grunniens) provide meat and other necessities for Tibetans living at high altitude on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and in adjacent regions. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of a female domestic yak generated using Illumina HiSeq 2000 technology at 65-fold coverage.
De novo assembly of 4.4 billion reads from paired-end libraries yielded a draft assembly with a total length of 2,657 Mb, and contig and scaffold N50 sizes of 20.4 kb and 1.4 Mb, respectively. Approximately 90% of the total sequence was covered by 2,083 scaffolds of >307 kb, with the largest scaffold spanning 8.8 Mb.
