Complete mitochondrial DNA sequence analysis of Bluespotted seabream, Pagrus caeruleostictus (Perciformes: Sparidae) [post]

2019 unpublished
Bluespotted seabream, Pagrus caeruleostictus is a benthopelagic marine species found in tropical regions and a member of the family Sparidae and genus Pagrus . In this article, a mitochondrial DNA sequence by high-throughput technique, Illumina Hiseq, was carried out on muscle of the above species and determined the complete mitogenome. Samples were obtained from species collected from the coast of Ghana, West Africa.Results The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence was 16,653 bases pairs in

The phylogenetic analysis showed P. caeruleostictus clustered with the clade of P. auriga. Conclusion This research will serve as the foundation for molecular genetic studies of Ghanaian fish species. Moreover, it will contribute to the phylogenetics of class Actinopterygii, order Spariformes, family Sparidae and genus Pagrus.
