From the abstract: "Plant mitochondrial genomes are often difficult to assemble because of frequent recombination mediated by repeats. Only a few mitochondrial genomes have been characterised in subfamily Papilionoideae of Leguminosae. Here, we report the complete mitochondrial genome of Castanospermum australe A.Cunn. & C.Fraser, an important medicinal and ornamental species in the Aldinoid clade of Papilionoideae."
