Abstract

We reported the complete mitochondrial genome of the Damaraland mole rat Fukomys damarensis which was retrieved from the published genome of the Brandt's bat Myotis brandtii. The mitogenome of F. damarensis is 16 868 bp in length with a base composition of 33.81% A, 30.79% T, 22.20% C, and 13.20% G, and contains 22 tRNA, two rRNA, 13 protein-coding genes, and a non-coding control region. The sequence of F. damarensis was verified by a phylogenetic analysis. Our study suggests a caution when utilizing the published genome assembly generated by next-generation sequencing.
