Animal Genome Size Database citations


Finding Nemo: hybrid assembly with Oxford Nanopore and Illumina reads greatly improves the clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) genome assembly

PMCID: 5848817
PMID: 29342277
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix137

[…] Map [] estimated a haploid genome size of 967 Mbp. The genome sizes estimated from both approaches are within the range of sizes listed for other Amphiprion species (792 Mb–1.2 Gb) as reported on the Animal Genome Size Database []. […]


Draft genome of the milu (Elaphurus davidianus)

PMCID: 5824821
PMID: 29267854
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix130

[…] ilu genome size and obtained estimates of 3.00 Gb and 2.78 Gb, respectively [] (Fig. S2). All these estimated genome sizes are within the range of C values (2.22 to 3.44) reported for Cervidae in the Animal Genome Size Database [], indicating that our estimations are credible (Table S3). […]


De novo genome assembly and annotation of Australia's largest freshwater fish, the Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii), from Illumina and Nanopore sequencing read

PMCID: 5597895
PMID: 28873963
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix063

[…] . The resulting analysis shows that the haploid genome size was between 640 and 669 Mbp for the Murray cod (Fig. ), a figure smaller than the 812 Mbp (C-value: 0.83 pg) estimated size reported on the Animal Genome Size Database [, ]. This smaller estimate may be due to an additional parameter introduced in GenomeScope, set to exclude extremely high-frequency kmers as these likely represent organel […]


Comparative genomics reveals contraction in olfactory receptor genes in bats

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5427940
PMID: 28325942
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-00132-9
call_split See protocol

[…] The genome size (C-value) for each of our sampled species was obtained from the Animal Genome Size Database. If the exact species did not have an entry in the database, we used an expected C-value calculated from the average C-value from other species of the same genus. Nonparame […]


Insights into the evolution of Darwin’s finches from comparative analysis of the Geospiza magnirostris genome sequence

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3575239
PMID: 23402223
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-95

[…] pproximately 89% of the euchromatic genome or approximately 76% of the complete genome. The estimated 1.250 Gb size of the G. magnirostris genome is similar to the mean avian genome size (1.38Gb, []. Animal Genome Size Database. expect this G. magnirostris genome assembly to be most incomplete within highly repetitive sequence. Use of either a library of transposable […]


Exploring Pandora's Box: Potential and Pitfalls of Low Coverage Genome Surveys for Evolutionary Biology

PLoS One
PMCID: 3504011
PMID: 23185309
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0049202

[…] ses the contigs were uploaded into a custom MySQL database (MySQL-server v. 5.1.44) . All of the filtering steps and the final dataset production were performed in the database using SQL-commands.The Animal Genome Size Database was used as a primary resource to obtain genome sizes to compute approximate genomic coverages for the libraries. We selected the closest relatives to our target species f […]
