Evolution of the mitochondrial transcription units in Candida. A cladogram of 15 Candida species and Yarrowia lipolytica with the organization of mitochondrial genomes in each species represented schematically. The length of the symbols representing genes is arbitrary and not indicative of the actual length of respective sequence regions. Noncoding intergenic sequences are not shown. The cladogram is based on the tree inferred from mtDNA encoded protein (see Methods). The tree with meaningful branch lengths and posterior probabilities is available as a supplementary figure (Additional file 1: Figure S5). Species belonging to the CTG clade are boxed by a dashed line. For the purpose of gene order comparison, RNL was arbitrarily set as the first gene, regardless of the actual genome topology. Red boxes indicate sequence blocks that underwent rearrangements in the evolution of the analyzed genomes. Black arrows indicate repeat regions in the genomes, the major primary transcription units (TUs) identified in C. albicans are shown as red arrows
