Data from: The sugarcane mitochondrial genome: assembly, phylogenetics and transcriptomics

Dyfed Lloyd Evans, Thandekile T. Hlongwane, Shailesh V. Joshi & Diego M. Riaño-Pachón
Background: Chloroplast genomes provide insufficient phylogenetic information to distinguish between closely related sugarcane cultivars, due to the recent origin of many cultivars and the conserved sequence of the chloroplast. In comparison, the mitochondrial genome of plants is much larger and more plastic and could contain increased phylogenetic signals. We assembled a consensus reference mitochondrion with Illumina TruSeq synthetic long reads and ONT MinION long reads. Based on this assembly we also analyzed the mitochondrial transcriptomes...
