The Yellow-throated Sandgrouse (Pterocles gutturalis saturatior (Hartert, 1900)) is a member of the Pteroclididae family (ground dwelling birds restricted to treeless, open country) and can be found in many countries in southern and eastern Africa.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a male at the Sharjah Breeding Center in the United Arab Emirates tended by An Pas, of a wild caught animal in Tanzania. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 25X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.07Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 17kb and 49kb respectively. We identified 13,867 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 12.8kb.
