The complete mitochondrial genome of Leuciscus baicalensis has a mostly conserved structural organization and it is 16,606 bp in size. It consisted of 37 genes (13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and 2 ribosomal RNA genes), and 2 main non-coding regions (the control region and the origin of the light strand replication).[2]
