The White tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla groenlandicus (Brehm, 1831)) is one of the largest birds of prey belonging to the Accipitridae family and is considered a close cousin of the Bald Eagle. The White-tailed eagle is a large bird with a wingspan that measures 1.78–2.45 m, and is an apex predator, meaning it is a predator with no predators of its own.
These data have been produced as part of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. DNA was collected from a vouchered sample (137926) of Natural History Museum of Denmark from a male caught in Greenland. We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 26X.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 1.14Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 20kb and 56kb respectively. We identified 13,831 protein-coding genes with a mean length of 14.2kb.
