Abstract

The mitochondrial genome of Sarothrura ayresi was sequenced using next generation sequencing technology. The size of the genome is reported as 16,767 bp and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 2
rRNAs and 22 tRNAs. The organization of the genome is comparable to that of other bird species.
A phylogenetic comparison mapped the relative relationship of Sarothrura ayresi with respect to other
species in the order Gruiformes.
