The mitochondrial genome of the Chinese giant salamander Andrias davidianus was isolated using the long-and-accurate polymerase chain reaction (LA PCR) method. The sequencing work adopted the shotgun strategy accompanying with seven internal primers to cover the gaps where overlapping clones were not available. The entire mtDNA sequence is 16,503 bp long, with a gene content of 13 protein-coding, two ribosomal RNA and 22 transfer RNA genes, and order identical to that observed in most other… CONTINUE READING
