Abstract

The complete chloroplast genome sequence of Corylopsis coreana, the first sequenced of the genus Corylopsis, was reported in this study. The total length was 159,398 bp, containing a pair of 26,270 bp inverted repeat region, which were separated by SSC region and LSC region of 18,692 and 88,163 bp, respectively. The overall GC content of the genome was 38%. The genome encoded 130 genes, including 85 protein-coding genes, 37 transfer RNA genes, and eight ribosomal RNA genes. The maximum likelihood phylogenetic analysis revealed that C. coreana was closely related to Sinowilsonia.
