- The whole chloroplast genome (cp genome) sequence of Platycarya strobilacea was characterized from Illumina pair-end sequencing data. The complete cp genome was 160,994 bp in length and contained a large single copy region (LSC) of 90,225 bp and a small single copy region (SSC) of 18,371 bp, which were separated by a pair of inverted repeat regions (IRs, 26,199 bp). The genome contained 130 genes, including 85 protein-coding genes (80 PCG species), 36 tRNA genes (29 tRNA species) and 8 ribosomal RNA genes (4 rRNA species). Most genes occur as a single copy, but 15 genes are duplicated. The overall AT content of the cp genome is 64 %, and the corresponding values of the LSC, SSC and IR regions are 66.4, 70.1 and 57.5 %, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis confirmed the placement of P. strobilacea near to Juglans.
