The draft genome of the blood pheasant (Ithaginis cruentus): phylogeny and high-altitude adaptation

Zhou Chuang
The blood pheasant (Ithaginis cruentus), the only species in the genus Ithaginis lives in an extremely inhospitable high-altitude environment, coping with hypoxia and UV radiation. To further investigate the phylogeny of Phasianidae species based on complete genomes and understand the molecular genetic mechanisms of the high-altitude adaptation of the blood pheasant, we de novo assembled and annotated the complete genome of the blood pheasant. The blood pheasant genome size is 1.04 Gb with scaf N50...
