Repeat region absent in mitochondrial genome of tube-dwelling diatom Berkeleya fennica (Naviculales, Bacillariophyceae).


The complete mitochondrial DNA of tube-dwelling diatom, Berkeleya fennica was sequenced and characterized. The circular mitogenome contains 63 genes in 35,509 bp (29.7% GC), including 36 protein-coding, 25 tRNA, 2 rRNA genes. Most of the protein-coding (27) genes have usual ATG start codon, except 9 genes such as ATA for rps8; ATC for rps14; ATT for rps12… (More)
