Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of the Lesser Antillean Iguana

In a collaboration with researchers from UNC Asheville, Mississippi State University, the University of Amsterdam, and the Shedd Aquarium, we have recently characterized the first mitochondrial genome of the critically endangered Lesser Antillean Iguana (Iguana delicatissima). We deployed a combination of off-target sequence capture and targeted Sanger reads to assemble the complete mitogenome. The paper can be found here.
