The complete mitochondrial DNA genome of Sinocyclocheilus xiaotunensis was first reported by nextgeneration
sequencing method. The entire length of mitochondrial genome is 16,588 bp and the
nucleotide composition was made up of 32.3% A, 25.0% T, 27.2% C, and 15.5% G, indicating an
AþT(57.3%) content is greater than CþG(42.7%). The mitogenome is a circular DNA molecule with a
D-loop region and contains 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes, two ribosomal RNA(rRNA) genes and 13 protein-
coding genes.To provide further info on the conserved sequence block observed in the control
region of the mitochondrial genome. This info is critical for future application and determination of
taxonomic status of this species.
