- Quercus tungmaiensis is an endemic species to SE Tibet. The complete plastid genome of Q. tungmaiensis was generated by Illumina pair-end sequencing in the current study. The whole plastome had a length of 160,702 bp, consisting of two copies of inverted repeat regions (25,825 bp), a large single copy (LSC) region (90,113 bp) and a small single copy (SSC) region (18,939 bp). The plastome encoded a total of 134 genes, comprising 86 protein-coding genes (79 PCG species), 40 tRNA genes (33 tRNA species), and 8 rRNA genes (4 rRNA species). The overall GC content of Q. tungmaiensis plastome is 36.9%. The maximum likelihood phylogenetic analysis based on 34 complete plastomes revealed that Q. tungmaiensis was closely related to Quercus aquifolioides with 100% bootstrap support value.
