The Brown Mesite (Mesitornis unicolor (Des Murs, 1845)) is a ground-dwelling bird native to Madagascar, and is one of three species of the Mesitornithidae family. It is a medium-sized terrestial bird that inhabits humid forests and prefers lower elevations - making it a vunerable population.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a vouchered sample (345610) of the Chicago Field Museum (via David Williard) in Chicago from a female caught in Fivondronana de Tolagnaro, Toliara, Madagascar. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 29X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.1Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 18kb and 46kb respectively. We identified 15,371 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 11.4kb.
