GigaScience Database. RIS BibTeX Text

The Indian gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), also known as the gavial or the fish-eating crocodile, is a crocodilian of the family Gavialidae, native to the Indian Subcontinent. The global gharial population is estimated at fewer than 235 individuals, which are threatened by loss of riverine habitat, depletion of fish resources and use of fishing nets.
These data have been produced as part of the Crocodilian Genomes Project. Genomic DNA was isolated using blood from an adult female that died of natural causes in 2010. Briefly, the gharial data consisted of Illumina reads from three libraries ranging from 50 to 170x coverage. These reads were assembled using SOAPdenovo v2.04.
