Knowledge of patterns of organellar inheritance are crucial for analyses of organellar genetics and population or phylogenetic analyses based on organellar genes. While it has previously been shown that chloroplast DNA is maternally inherited in cotton (Gossypium L.), no, studies have assessed the mitochondrial genome complement of the allotetraploid species of cotton or addressed inheritance of mitochondrial DNA. In this article we report Southern hybridization analyses that indicate that the AD-genome allotetraploid species have an A-genome-like mitochondrial genome and provide evidence that mitochondrial genomes are also maternally inherited in cotton.
