Mitochondrial DNA Part B

This open access journal publishes high-quality and concise research articles reporting the sequence of full mitochondrial genomes, and rapid communications focusing on the physical, chemical, and biochemical aspects of mtDNA and proteins involved in mtDNA metabolism and interactions.


The papers we offer here are a collection of some of the interesting developments in mtDNA research via these short communications and announcements. Several of these published papers report on the rapid production of multiple genomes with next generation sequencing (NGS). This development will no doubt speed the rate with which we discover and archive sequences from hard to analyze groups. Some of the other papers highlight DNA barcoding of specific groups. While DNA barcoding is a twenty-year-old subdiscipline in systematics, we feel that this journal serves as a venue for continued research in this area. We also include papers on endangered species an important subject in modern biology. Finally several of the papers demonstrate the utility of ancient DNA in evolutionary biology. We hope that the authors and readers of these papers in this journal continue their interest in these important areas of mitochondrial and organellar biology.
