The Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna (Lesson, 1829)) is a medium-sized hummingbird native to the west coast of North America and is the only North American hummingbird species with a red crown. It belongs to one of the rare groups of vocal learning birds. The bird was named after Anna Massena, Duchess of Rivoli.
These data have been produced as part of the G10K and Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from from a female, which was caught in Portland, Oregan, USA by Claudio Mello and Pete Lovell. We sequenced the 1 Gb genome to a depth of approximately 110X 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 total 1.1Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 23 kb and 4Mb respectively. We identified 16,000 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 18.5kb.
