The sRNAs were then assembled into 6,346 contigs with a k-mer of 17 using Velvet (Kreuze et al., 2009; Wu et al., 2010).

The gene annotation using PANTHER identified 9 different sequences across all the contigs which belonged to glycosyl hydrolase family13.
In a recent study comparing 454 GS-FLX (Roche Diagnostics Corporation) to Illumina (Illumina, Inc.) for the utility of RNA-seq in a non-model bird, Illumina assemblies performed best for de novo transcriptome characterization in terms of contig length, transcriptome coverage, and complete assembly of gene transcripts [41].
The quality score of genome sequences was assigned based on a combination of contigs and nonstandard bases.

Contig Contiguous regions of DNA generated by joining together raw sequence reads.
Read coverage (average contig size) within the differentially expressed contigs ranged from 407.7 reads/contig in gill to 509.1 reads/contig in muscle.
The 454/Roche GS FLX sequencer generated a total of 3991 reads with an average read length of 697 nucleotides arranged in one contig of 44794 nucleotides providing a 60.38X coverage N50 value of 44.79 Kb and 99.91% of Q40+.
From this site around 88,530 whole genome shotgun (WGS) contig sequences (BAGR-01000001 to BAGR01088530) were downloaded.
The de novo assembly of the 454 and Illumina high-quality reads (95% and 75%) were resulted more than 82 Mb sequence length with an average contig read length of 1,614 bp in 51,188 contigs which is the long length contigs with at least 500 bp.
For this, individual contig sequences were aligned with GenBank sequences of all regional species using Sequencer 4.4 software for PC (Gene Codes Corp, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA), and unique haplotypes were identified after export into MEGA software for phylogenetic analysis (12).
