The Bird 10,000 Genomes (B10K) Project is an initiative to generate representative draft genome sequences from all extant bird species. Based on the success of the previous ordinal level project , the project provided the first proof of concept in large-scale sequencing across a vertebrate class and a perspective on such discoveries that these genomes can make. The announcement of the B10K Project was published on 3rd June 2015 in Nature.
