* The complete mitochondrial genome of Paradoxornis webbianus (Passeriformes, Muscicapidae).
- The complete sequences of the mitochondrial DNA genome from Paradoxornis webbianus was determined using the polymerase chain reaction method. The genome (16,960 bp in length) contained 37 genes (13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes and 22 tRNA genes), a control region (D-loop) and a non-coding region at two different locations of mitogenome, which is similar to the typical mtDNA of vertebrates. All the protein-coding genes in P. webbianus were distributed on the H-strand, except for the ND6 subunit gene and eight tRNA genes which were encoded on the L-strand.
