Eonycteris spelaea. Morphological Description. · Dorsal fur is dark brown. Ventral fur is lighter. · Juveniles are lighter than adults. · This is a medium-sized fruit. Exploring the genome and transcriptome of the cave nectar bat Eonycteris spelaea with PacBio long-read sequencing. Wen M(1), Ng JHJ(1). The cave nectar bat or lesser dawn bat (Eonycteris spelaea), is known to be a reservoir for several viruses and intracellular bacteria.

Kunz and Fenton, ; Macdonald, ; Nowak, Four libraries of 1—2 kb, 2—3 kb, 3—6 kb, and 5—10 kb insert sizes were generated using the P6-C4 kits and subsequently sequenced.

The Biology of Bats. Scatter plot of the genome size and proportion of repeat content for 15 bats genomes. PacBio subreads were filtered with default parameters and submitted to Falcon [ 35 ], v. Subfamily Harpyionycterinae Aproteles Bulmer’s eonhcteris bat A.

Of the 20, coding genes, we observed 10, 5, are supported by clean Iso-Seq transcripts single transcript genes and 10, 5, are supported by clean Iso-Seq transcripts alternatively spliced genes. Because of that, this bat species is a very important pollinator of fruit trees, such as durians[2] notably both Durio selaea and Durio graveolens. One study finds females exhibiting a pattern characterized by synchronous births and seasonal, bimodal polyestry, while other sources find no synchronicity between females and no seasonal synchronicity.


Here, we report the whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing, followed by subsequent de novo assembly, of the E. The remaining 31, clean transcripts were compared against our homology and ab initio predicted genes. Madagascan fruit bat E.

IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

Long flights between roosting and feeding grounds is common in Pteropodidae. Eonycteris spelaea and O. Myotis rufoniger genome sequence and analyses: Eonycteris spelaea is almost exclusively a cave roosting species. The long-read length of PacBio sequencing, which is available for both DNA and RNA sequencing also known as isoform sequencing [Iso-Seq]has shown considerable promise in genomics studies.

Daligner was used to detect all pairwise local overlapping regions between subreads and also between corrected preads. The University of Chicago Press. Detailed listing of E. In captivity, individuals have been fed coconut Cocos pulp and guava Psidium. Jones, Behavior Lesser dawn fruit bats are gregarious, roosting during the day in spelawa high ceilings of caves in colonies numbering from a dozen to over ten thousand individuals.


Eonycteris bernsteini TateMacroglossus spelaeus Dobsonfonycteris Assembling large genomes with single-molecule sequencing and locality-sensitive hashing. As a result, the predicted gene set included 20, protein-coding genes Fig.

This species is killed for bushmeat in Cambodia. Lesser short-nosed fruit bat C.

Venn diagram for coding gene predictions based on evidence sources. Populations in Java and the Lesser Sundas Islands are considered endangered because of cave disturbance, hunting, and habitat destruction. Bats were euthanized using isoflurane and exsanguinated via cardiac bleed. Accessed November 09, at http: However, this species travels considerable eonyycteris to feed, and spellaea often fly 20 to 40 km from their day roosts to the night flowering trees where they feed.

For the final assembly Espe.
