Gene orders of mitochondrial genomes from Sipuncula and the Annelida/Echiura group. Abbreviations are as explained in the text. Shaded boxes highlight different sets of conserved gene blocks among the taxa shown. Gene segments are not drawn to scale. All genes are transcribed from left-to-right except those indicated by underlining, which are transcribed from right to left.
