Full-length mitochondrial genome sequence of Biomphalaria glabrata

The complete mitochondrial genome (13,670 nt) of Biomphalaria glabrata was characterized from M-line and NHM 1742 strains in a collaborative effort between the University of New Mexico (USA) and the Natural History Museum (UK). The sequences are available from GenBank (AY380567 and AY380531, respectively), the information is also available from the Genome database (NC_005439). 






 





The circular genome of 13670 base-pairs (bp) is displayed above. The 13 protein coding genes are displayed as solid, colored blocks. Genes encoded on the plus strand are displayed outside the circle; those on the minus strand are displayed inside the circle. RNAs are displayed as open blocks - transfer RNAs (22 in number) with a black outline, the 2 ribosomal RNAs with a red outline. Numbers below the genes refer to position in the genome (bp).
