The Macqueen's Bustard (Chlamydotis macqueenii (Gray, 1832)) is a large bird that breeds in southwest Asia in deserts and similarly arid sandy areas. It has recently split as a separate species from the Houbara Bustard of the Canary Islands and Africa, and one difference is that the MacQueen's Bustard has a tendancy to wander compared with the Houbara.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a male in the Dubai Falcon Hospital (originally wild caught), with blood samples provided by Tom Bailey of the Hospital. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 27X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.09Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 18kb and 45kb respectively. We identified 13,582 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 12.9kb.
