The Javan Rhinoceros Hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros silvestris (Vieillot, 1816)) is a sub species of the Rhinoceros Hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros), one of the world's largest hornbills that has lived in captivity for over 90 years. It is found it lowland and tropical and sub-tropical mountain rainforests in Borneo, Sumatra, Java, the Malay Peninsula, Singapore and southern Thailand. It is also the state bird of the Malaysian state Sarawak.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a male who had lived at the Copenhagen Zoo (originally born wild) in Denmark, of an animal tended to by Mads Bertelsen. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 35X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.08Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 14kb and 51kb respectively. We identified 13,873 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 13.5kb.
