Genomic data of the Puerto Rican Parrot (Amazona vittata) from a locally funded project

TK Oleksyk, W Guiblet, JF Pombert, R Valentin & JC Martinez-Cruzado
These data represent the first assembly of a genome sequence for a critically endangered parrot (Amazona vittata) endemic to the United States, and also the first genome of a species from the diverse and ecologically important genus Amazona native to South America and the Caribbean. One sample has been selected from the non-reproductive female at Rio Abajo Breeding Facility in Puerto Rico (IACUC#201109.1), and sequenced on Illumina HiSeq platform with both fragment and paired-end sequencing...
