The complete mitochondrial genome of Hine’s emerald dragonfly (Somatochlora hineana Williamson) via NGS sequencing

May 10, 2018

Here, we report the complete mitochondrial genome of the endangered Hine’s emerald dragonfly (HED), Somatochlora hineana Williamson. Data were generated via next generation sequencing (NGS) and assembled using a mitochondrial baiting and iterative mapping approach. The full length circular genome is 15,705 bp with 26.6% GC content. It contains the typical metazoan set of 37 genes: 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) and 2 ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes, and an A + T-rich control region. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the complete HED mitogenome.
