The Chuck-will's-widow (Antrostomus carolinensis (Gmelin, 1789)) is a nocturnal bird and part of the Caprimulgidae family. It's name is derived from a continuous repetitive song often heard at night, and is often confused with Whippoorwills due to their similar calls and unusual names.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a vouchered tissue sample (B-3403) from the Louisiana State University Museum, of a male caught in East Jetty Woods, Cameron Parish, Louisiana, USA. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 30X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.15Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 17kb and 45kb respectively. We identified 14,676 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 12kb.
