The Sunbittern (Eurypyga helias helias (Pallas, 1781)) is the sole member of the family Eurypygidae and is found in Central to South America from Mexico, Peru to Brazil. It has similar morphological features to the Kagu of New Caledonia and is a non-migrant bird that is normally found on the ground scratching for insects.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a female from the Odense Zoo in Denmark, of an animal obtained by Mads Bertelsen. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 33X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.1Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 16kb and 46kb respectively. We identified 13,974 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 12.3kb.
