The complete chloroplast genome sequence of American bird pepper (Capsicum annuum var. glabriusculum) is reported and characterized in this study. The genome size is 156,612 bp, containing a pair of inverted repeats (IRs) of 25,776 bp separated by a large single-copy region of 87,213 bp and a small single-copy region of 17,851 bp. The chloroplast genome(More)
BACKGROUND The distribution of genetic variability from the interior towards the periphery of a species' range is of great interest to evolutionary biologists. Although it has been long presumed that population genetic variation should decrease as a species' range is approached, results of empirical investigations still remain ambiguous. Knowledge regarding(More)
In this study, we report the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of western painted turtle, Chrysemys picta bellii. The genome is found to be 16,875 bp in length and has a base composition of A (34.4%), G (13.0%), C (26.0%), and T (26.6%). Similar to other turtles, it contains a typically conserved structure including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer(More)
Semi-wild soybean, Glycine gracilis, harbors unique gene resources for the soybean breeding programs, which would help to understand the process of soybean domestication. Here, we sequenced and characterized the complete chloroplast genome sequence of the semi-wild soybean. The genome of G. gracilis has 152,218 bp in length with 35.37% GC content. It(More)
Here we assembled and analyzed the complete chloroplast genome of Prunus mume, a popular ornamental and editable fruit tree of Rosaceae. The cp genome exhibited a circular DNA molecule of 157 712 bp with a typical quadripartite structure consisted of two inverted repeat regions (IRa and IRb) of 26 394 bp separated by large (LSC) and small (SSC) single-copy(More)
In this article we report the complete mitochondrial genome of black flying fox, Pteropus alecto, with the sequence length of 16,739 bp for the first time. The mitogenome contained a total of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and 1 control region. The base composition was A (33.1%), G (14.5%), C (27.2%) and T (25.2%),(More)
Wild soybean Glycine soja is the presumed wild ancestor of cultivated soybean G. max, which harbors abundant and unique gene resources for soybean breeding programs. Here we report the chloroplast genome sequence of G. soja using next-generation sequencing technology. The complete chloroplast genome size is 152,217 bp. The genome includes of a pair of(More)
