We have determined the physical and genetic map of the 73,000 base-pair mitochondrial genome of a novel yeast species Saccharomyces douglasii. Most of the protein and RNA-coding genes known to be present in the mitochondrial DNA of Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been identified and located on the S. douglasii mitochondrial genome. The nuclear genomes of the two species are thought to have diverged some 50 to 80 million years ago and their nucleo-mitochondrial hybrids are viable but respiratorily… CONTINUE READING
