Comparative Analysis of the Mitochondrial Genomes in Gastropods
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the mitochondrial genomes in gastropods was presented and nucleotide and amino acids composition was calculated and a comparative was calculated.
The mitochondrial genome: so simple yet so complex.

TLDR
This review highlights recent advances in understanding of mitochondrial gene organization and expression and illustrates a remarkable diversity among eukaryotic lineages and an impressive complexity of events needed to achieve nuclear-mitochondrial harmony.
TYPES OF DNA USED IN SPECIATION AND PHYLOGENY STUDIES
The present paper represents a synthesis of the main types of molecular markers used in contemporary phylogeny and phylogeography studies. Our purpose is also to reveal the recent discovered role of
The mitochondrial genome on its way to the nucleus: different stages of gene transfer in higher plants
TLDR
The recently identified variations of the information content in mitochondrial genomes of different plant species represent different stages of the transfer process and allow a definition of requirements and chances of successful gene transfers.

Analysis of organellar genomes strongly supports the idea that chloroplasts and mitochondria originated in evolution as eubacteria-like endosymbionts, whose closest contemporaries are cyanobacteria

Despite inhabiting the same cell lineage for roughly a billion years and being dependent on the same nucleus for most of their gene products and genetic control, the two organelle genomes of land
Evolution of mitochondrial genomes in fungi.
TLDR
Sizes, gene topology, and structures contributing to size variation of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNAs) in fungi are described and mechanisms for generating length mutations and rearrangements together with a description of mtDNA codon variations are presented.
In vivo conformation of mitochondrial DNA in fungi and zoosporic moulds
TLDR
Electrophoretic profiles demonstrate that long, linear molecules of a heterogenous size are the preveailing in-vivo form of organelle DNA in all examined species, consistent with the presence of the rolling-circle mode of mtDNA replication that occurs in all branches of true fungi and zoosporic moulds.

Abstract Developments in micropaleontology, RNA and protein sequencing, and the analysis of genome organization suggest a view of early cellular evolution radically different from that accepted as
Why mitochondria need a genome
TLDR
It is suggested that the machinery for co-translational protein export across the endoplasmic reticulum membrane sets strict limits on the kinds of protein-coding genes that can be successfully transferred from the mitochondrial to the nuclear genome.
Mitochondrial genes in trypanosomes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the trypanosome mitochondrial genetic system possesses some unorthodox features including an apparent lack of tRNA genes, the small size of ribosomal RNAs, avery high cysteine content in mitochondrially encoded proteins, abnormal initiator triplets and evidence for a conserved frameshift in a cytochrome oxidase gene.

The plant mitochondrial genome: homologous recombination as a mechanism for generating heterogeneity
TLDR
It is proposed that inter- and intramolecular homologous recombination can account for the diversity of the observed genome organizations, and unequal partitioning of the cytoplasm during cell division can lead to the rapid evolution of mitochondrial genome structure.
The Bacterial Ancestry of Plastids and Mitochondria
TLDR
Comparative studies of these particular organelle genes and the RNAs they encode now provide the most compelling evidence available that mitochondrial and plastid genomes are descended from the genomes of bacteria-like organisms that entered into an endosymbiotic relationship with a primitive host cell bearing the nuclear genome.

This work focuses on molecular aspects of animal mtDNA that are especially relevant to its use in evolutionary studies, and considers the form and frequency of three types of change in mtDNA: base substitution, length variation, and sequence rearrangement.
