Mitochondrial DNA A DNA Mapp Seq Anal. 2016;27(1):126-7. doi: 10.3109/19401736.2013.878907. Epub 2014 Jan 17.

Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of Cherax cainii was recovered from partial genome sequencing data using the HiSeq platform. The mitogenome consists of 15,801 base pairs (69% A + T content) containing 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal subunit genes, 22 transfer RNAs and a 783 bp non-coding AT-rich region. This is the second completely sequenced mitogenome from the genus Cherax after the first reported Cherax destructor mitogenome nearly a decade ago.

Keywords: Freshwater crayfish; Parastacidae; mitogenome.
