ailMel1 (GCA_000004335.1) is an assembly of the giant panda, sequenced using a three-year-old female panda at China's Chengdu breeding center. The genome sequencing and assembly are provided by the Bejing Genomics Institute (BGI).
The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer. The N50 size of the scaffolds is 1.3Mb. The total length of all scaffolds is 2.3Gb, for a genome size estimated to be 2.4Gb.
The genome assembly represented here corresponds to GenBank Assembly ID GCA_000004335.1
The gene set for panda was built using the Ensembl pipeline. Gene models are based on genewise alignments of mammal proteins as well as genetically distance proteins from other species, including most vertebrate proteins from Uniprot. Additionally, dog and human proteins were aligned using exonerate.
Potentially missing predictions and partial gene predictions were identified by examining the orthologs, which were then used to build new gene models.
General information about this species can be found in Wikipedia.
