Abstract

Mitochondrial genetic markers have been extensively used to study the phylogenetics and phylogeography of many birds, including seabirds of the order Procellariiformes. Evidence suggests that part of the mitochondrial genome of Procellariiformes, especially albatrosses, is duplicated, but no DNA fragment covering the entire duplication has been sequenced. We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of a non-albatross species of Procellariiformes, Puffinus lherminieri (Audubon's shearwater) using the long-read MinION (ONT) technology. Two mitogenomes were assembled from the same individual, differing by 52 SNPs and in length. The shorter was 19 kb long while the longer was 21 kb, due to the presence of two identical copies of nad6, three tRNA, and two dissimilar copies of the control region (CR). Contrary to albatrosses, cob was not duplicated. We further detected a complex repeated region of undetermined length between the CR and 12S. Long-read sequencing suggests heteroplasmy and a novel arrangement within the duplicated region, indicating a complex evolution of the mitogenome in Procellariiformes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 July 2018.
All research outputs
#9,927,471
of 12,400,657 outputs
Outputs from Mitochondrial DNA Part A
#123
of 285 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#200,740
of 270,092 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Mitochondrial DNA Part A
#4
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,400,657 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 285 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,092 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 4 of them.
