We studied the relations between triplet composition of the family of mitochondrial atp6, atp8 and atp9 genes, their function, and taxonomy of the bearers. The points in 64-dimensional metric space corresponding to genes have been clustered. It was found the points are separated into three clusters corresponding to those genes. 223 mitochondrial genomes have been enrolled into the database.
