The Cuckoo Roller (Leptosomus discolor discolor (Hermann, 1783)) is the sole bird of the order Leptosomiformes within the superorder Coraciimorphae - that includes kingfishers, rollers and bee-eaters. It is a medium-large bird that inhabits forests and woodlands in Madagascar and the Comoro Islands.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a female at Weltvogelpark, in Walsrode, Germany, of a male tended to by Andreas Frei of the Zoo. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 32X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.15Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 19kb and 61kb respectively. We identified 14,831 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 13.9kb.
