In this BMC Genomics paper, scientists report assembling the genome sequence of Hemignathus virens, a member of the Hawaiian honeycreeper bird family. They identified nearly 4 million SNPs in the genome, as well as some 156,000 SNPs in a RAD tag study of five honeycreeper species that were compared to the reference genome assembly. Paired-end sequencing was perfomed with the MiSeq and HiSeq 2000 after size selection with Pippin Prep.
