Erinaceus europaeus

Genome assembly: EriEur2 (GCA 000296755.1)

This release features the second draft assembly of the hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus, GCA_000296755.1, which became available in September 2012. The assembly comprises 5802 toplevel sequences, all of which are unplaced scaffolds (from 225566 contigs). The N50 of the contigs is 21.4 kb and the N50 of the scaffolds is 2.9 Mb. The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer.
