    We report sequence data obtained by our recently devised target capture method TargetEC applied to 20 inbred rat strains. This method encompasses not only all annotated exons but also highly conserved non-coding sequences shared among vertebrates. The total length of the target regions covers 146.8 Mb. On an average, we obtained 31.7 × depth of target coverage and identified 154,330 SNVs and 24,368 INDELs for each strain. This corresponds to 470,037 unique SNVs and 68,652 unique INDELs among the 20 strains. The sequence data can be accessed at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under accession number PRJDB4648, and the identified variants have been deposited at
