    ABSTRACT: In North America, the Atlantic-Gulf discontinuity depicts genetic breaks between populations distributed along the Florida peninsula. This study examines 83 specimens of E. spinulosus obtained from seven locations along the Florida coast to examine phylogeographic patterns, population structure and examine historical demographic patterns. Analyses of 511 bp from the cytochrome oxidase 1 (COI) mitochondrial gene inferred no significant genetic structure for E. spinulosus along either side of the Florida coast nor was there a genetic discontinuity associated with a "Gulf-Atlantic" split. Population-based statistical analyses revealed no significant degree of genetic differentiation (Fst, p < 0.05) among populations, thus indicating substantial gene flow. Similarly, summary statistics (Fu's Fs, mismatch distributions) were significant indicating that there has been a population increase in the recent past. Recent range expansion, possibly due to a leading edge effect, combined with some level of contemporary larval mixing seems to be the main source of panmixia in this species.

    ABSTRACT: Paramisgurnus dabryanus, a small-sized freshwater fish species, is one of the most important cultured fish in East Asia from Russia to China. In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of P. dabryanus is sequenced to be 16,566 bp in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNAs, 22 transfer RNAs, a control region and the origin of the light strand replication. The overall base composition of P. dabryanus in descending order is A 29.66 %, T 28.04%, C 25.81% and G 16.49%, with a slight A + T bias. The mitogenome sequence data may provide useful information to the population genetics analysis of P. dabryanus and the elucidation of evolutionary mechanisms in Cobitidae.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Scartelaos gigas was firstly determined. The circular genome (16 717 bp) comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 1 control region. The overall base composition of S. gigas is 28.9% for C, 28.3% for A, 26.4% for T, 16.4% for G, with a slight A + T bias of 54.7%. In the control region, the termination-associated sequence and conserved sequence block domains were found, but the tandem repeat structure was not found. It has the typical vertebrate mitochondrial gene arrangement. The phylogenic analysis using the Neighbor-Joining method showed that the fishes belonging to Gobiidae, Odontoburidae, and Eleotridae formed three branches grouped with other fishes into one clade which separated from the mammals. We hope that the results from the present study will provide useful molecular information for the further studies on genetic structure and demographic history of S. gigas.

    ABSTRACT: The Hoffmann's two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni), a member of Folivora suborder, is found in the rainforest canopy of South America. Both the Hoffmann's two-toed sloth and human belong to Eutheria subclass. In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of C. hoffmanni is reported . The whole mitochondrial genome is 16 466 bp in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and 2 ribosomal RNA genes. Comparison between the mitochondrial genome of the C. hoffmanni and that of its congener Choloepus didactylus revealed a high similarity in their gene sequences. We also constructed a phylogenetic tree on the complete mitochondrial genomes of these two species and other 14 closely related species to show their phylogenic relationship. To conclude, we analyzed the complete mitochondrial genome of C. hoffmanni and its phylogenic relationship with other related species, which would facilitate our understanding of the evolution of eutherian mitochondrial genome.

    ABSTRACT: Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries belongs to Baciuariophyta, which can produce the neurotoxin known as domoic acid, a toxin that can cause amnesic shellfish poisoning in human beings. The research aspects mainly focus on its toxicity and diversity. However, there is no mitochondrial genome information about P. multiseries. The complete mitochondrial genome of P. multiseries was obtained through amplifying. The mitogenome is 46 283 bp in length with 31.04% GC content. It has a typical cyclic structure. The genome contains 37 protein-coding genes, including unidentified open reading frames, 23 tRNAs and 2rRNAs. Four group II introns were found in rps5, cob, cox1 and cox2. The co-linear analysis result exhibited existence of gene modules re-arrangements and inversions among P. multiseries, Synedra acus and Thalassiosira pseudonana. The gene contents comparison showed they have high similarities. Phylogeny results suggest P. multiseries has a close evolutionary relationship with T. pseudonana.

    ABSTRACT: The emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) is the largest living species of penguin. Herein, we first reported the complete mitochondrial genome of emperor penguin. The mitochondrial genome is a circular molecule of 17 301 bp in length, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA, and one control region. To verify the accuracy and the utility of new determined mitogenome sequences, we constructed the species phylogenetic tree of emperor penguin together with 10 other closely species. This is the second complete mitochondrial genome of penguin, and this is going to be an important data to study mitochondrial evolution of birds.

    ABSTRACT: The genetic diversity of Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito based on the standard barcode region of cytochrome C oxidase I (COI) gene fragment was studied in the present study. The COI gene sequences of Cx. quinquefasciatus were also compared with four other species of Genus Culex (i.e. Cx. tritaeniorhynchus, Cx. fuscocephala, Cx. pipiens, and Cx. theileri). Our data set included sequences of Culex mosquitoes from 16 different countries of world. The average intraspecific and interspecific divergences recorded were 0.67% and 8.27%, respectively. The clades for five species were clearly separated except Cx. quinquefasciatus and Cx. pipiens. It is concluded that the DNA barcoding is effective and reliable tool for the identification of selected Culex species but create little problem in case of sister species.

    ABSTRACT: The first mitochondrial genome sequences of Aegista and Dolicheulota belonging to Bradybaenidae are described in this report. Mitogenomic sequences were generated from Illumina paired-end sequencing. The complete mitogenome of Aegista diversifamilia was 14,039 bp in length and nearly complete mitogenome of Dolicheulota formosensis was 14,237 bp. Both mitogenomes consisted of 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and 22 transfer RNA genes. Most genes were overlapped with neighboring genes that the overlapping regions ranged from 2 to 64 bp in A. diversifamilia and from 1 to 45 bp in D. formosensis. Novel gene arrangement, tRNA–Tyr–ND3–tRNA–Trp, was identified in A. diversifamilia, whereas D. formosensis showed identical gene order to other Bradybaenidae mitogenomes. Maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree suggested Aegista as a sister clade to Euhadra and Dolicheulota. Bradybaenidae is monophyly sister clade to Camaenidae.

    ABSTRACT: Morphology-based taxonomical studies of ascidians in India are meagre due to lack of ascidian taxonomist and limitations inherent in conventional system-based identification. The use of short fragment of mitochondrial DNA sequence is proving highly useful in identifying species in a situation where, the traditional morphology-based identification is difficult. In the present study, two adult solitary ascidians collected from the Thoothukudi coast were morphologically identified as Herdmania momus Savigny, 1816 and Microcosmus squamiger Michaelsen, 1927. The genomic DNA of these ascidians was isolated, COI gene was amplified, sequenced and submitted to the GenBank under the accession numbers KM058116, KM411616 and KJ944390. Homology search result using BLAST showed that H. momus showed 100% matched with other H. momus, while M. squamiger showed similarity with Pyura herdmani, a member of the same family Pyuridae. The phylogenetic and genetic distance was maximum in interspecies than in intraspecies. These COI sequences will allow the identification of the species through DNA barcoding technique. Here, we report for the first time the COI gene of H. momus, Savigny 1816 from the Indian coast.
