Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The complete mitogenome of Buccinum undatum obtained from transcriptome analysis is presented here. The mitogenome is 15,265 bp in length and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal subunit genes, and 22 transfer RNAs. The complete genome was used to perform a phylogenetic analysis together with other Buccinoidea representatives with mitogenome data from GenBank.
