Data from: The plover neurotranscriptome assembly: transcriptomic analysis in an ecological model species without a reference genome

Hooman K. Moghadam, Peter W. Harrison, Gergely Zachar, Tamás Székely & Judith E. Mank
We assembled a de novo transcriptome of short-read Illumina RNA-Seq data generated from telencephalon and diencephalon tissue samples from the Kentish plover, Charadrius alexandrinus. This is a species of considerable interest in behavioural ecology for its highly variable mating system and parental behaviour, but it lacks genomic resources and is evolutionarily distant from the few available avian draft genome sequences. We assembled and identified over 21 000 transcript contigs with significant expression in our samples,...
