However, even if some complete chiton mtDNAs have been recently sequenced, Polyplacophora thorough studies of their evolution are lacking. To further expand the set of complete chiton mtDNAs and Mollusca perform such analysis, we sequenced the mitochondrial genome of the Eastern beaded chiton Chaetopleura Mitochondrial genome apiculata (Chaetopleuridae) using next-generation sequencing. With mitochondrial sequences from all available Gene order evolution chiton mtDNAs, we also built a phylogeny on which we reconstructed the evolution of gene arrangement in this Phylogeny class. The arrangement of C. apiculata proved to be the most primitive known so far for polyplacophorans. Comparing this gene order to those of other molluscan classes, we found that it most
