The Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus vociferus (Linnaeus, 1758)) is a medium-sized plover (a wading bird belonging to the subfamily Charadriinae), and often uses a "broken wing act" to distract predators from their nests.
These data have been produced as part of the G10K and Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a vouchered tissue sample (B-66055) from the Louisiana State University Museum, of a female, subspecies peruvianus, caught in Loreto, Peru. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 100X 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 1.2 Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 32 kb and 3.6Mb respectively. We identified 16,856 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 19.1kb.
