The mitochondrion is an organelle found in eukaryote organisms, and it is vital for different cellular pathways. The mitochondrion has its own DNA molecule and, because its genetic content is relatively conserved, despite the variation of size and structure, mitogenome sequences have been widely used as a promising molecular biomarker for taxonomy and evolution in fungi. In this study, the mitogenomes of two fungal species of Agaricomycetes class, Phellinotus piptadeniae and Trametes villosa, were assembled and annotated for the first time. Read More
