Data from: Mitochondrial genomes of domestic animals need scrutiny

Ni-Ni Shi, Long Fan, Yong-Gang Yao, Min-Sheng Peng & Ya-Ping Zhang
More than 1000 complete or near-complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences have been deposited in GenBank for eight common domestic animals (cattle, dog, goat, horse, pig, sheep, yak and chicken) and their close wild ancestors or relatives, as well. Nevertheless, few efforts have been performed to evaluate the sequence data quality. Herein, we conducted a phylogenetic survey of these complete or near-complete mtDNA sequences based on mtDNA haplogroup trees for the eight animals. We show that...
