Summary of mitochondrial genome size of different species. Values on vertical scale are the number of base pairs in each organelle. For metazoans, the average mitochondrial genome size of 1104 species is presented. Chloroplast genome size of Cucumis melo is unknown; however, given the constant chloroplast size in angiosperms it is estimated at around 150-160 kb.
