The mitochondrial genome of the hog deer (Axis porcinus) was sequenced using an Illumina MiSeq. The assembled genome consists of 16,351 bp, and shared a 99.8% similarity to the published chital deer (Axis axis) genome, suggesting that they belong to the same species. Further research is ongoing to understand why these mitochondrial genomes are highly similar.
