Abstract

In this study, we present a complete mitochondrial genome of a deep-water amphipoda Brachyuropus grewingkii (Dybowsky, 1874) from Lake Baikal. A circular mitochondrial DNA has 17,118 bp in length and contains 13 protein-coding genes, two ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, a putative control region, and five intergenic spacers. An extended control region and altered positions of some tRNA genes distinguish mitochondrial genome of B. grewingkii from the mitochondrial genomes described for other Baikalian amphipoda species.
