Abstract
We determined the complete mitochondrial genome of the female hard-shelled mussel Mytilus coruscus (Gould, 1869) (F type). The F type genome is composed of 16,642bp in length including 12 protein coding genes (PCGs), 2 rRNA and 23 tRNA with the same gene content and order as the other Mytilus species which is characterized by the absence of the ATPase8 gene and addition of tRNAMet(AUA). The nucleotide composition of the genome shows that the percentage of A+T (63.2%) is higher than those of M. edulis complex species (M. edulis, M. galloprovincialis, M. trossulus) but lower than that of M. californianus. The F type mitochondrial genome of M. coruscus will provide useful information on the evolutionary history of the Mytilus species in the family Mitilidae. the same gene content and order as the other Mytilus species which is characterized by the absence of the ATPase8 gene and addition of tRNAMet(AUA).
