Offers gene annotation of Macropus eugenii also known as tammar wallaby. The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer. For the contigs in the assembly the N50 size is 2.5 kb and for the scaffolds 14.5 kb. The total length of all of the contigs in the assembly is 2.55 Gb with the assembly spanning 2.78 Gb. The gene set for wallaby contains a total of 17,877 genes, of which 15,290 are protein coding. Macropus eugenii belongs to the Macropodidae family.
