Complete chloroplast genome sequence of Solanum erianthum: genome structure and genomic resources

Mitochondrial DNA B Resour. 2021 Sep 27;6(10):3070-3072. doi: 10.1080/23802359.2021.1981162. eCollection 2021.


Solanum erianthum is known for its valuable medicinal properties. In this study, we report its complete chloroplast genome. The chloroplast genome size is 156,343 bp, including a LSC region of 86,855 bp, a SSC region of 18,608 bp and two inverted repeats (IR). The complete chloroplast genome includes a total of 128 unique genes with 83 protein-coding sequences, 37 tRNA and 8 rRNA genes. The results showed that S. erianthum was the most closely related to S. violaceum.
