Recent advances in understanding mitochondrial genome diversity.

Ever since its discovery, the double-stranded DNA contained in the mitochondria of eukaryotes has fascinated researchers attributable to its bacterial endosymbiotic origin, important place in encoding subunits of the respiratory complexes, compact nature, and specific inheritance mechanisms. In the last few years, high-throughput sequencing strategies have accelerated the sequencing of mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) and uncovered …
