Title Guineafowl Genomic Project
Relevance Agricultural
Data types Whole genome sequencing
Organisms Numida meleagris
Guttera pucherani
Acryllium vulturinum
Description Domestic guineafowl was domesticated from wild helmeted guineafowl (Numida meleagris) in Africa. To investigate its genetic diversity and domestication history, we conduct this project. Our goals include: (1) to provide the reference genome draft for domestic guineafowl; (2) to resequence the genomes for two outgroup species (Guttera pucherani and Acryllium vulturinum); (3) to depict the genomic diversity of wild and domestic helmeted guineafowl populations.
