|Revised Cambridge Reference Sequence ("rCRS") |
The rCRS is available as sequence number NC_012920 (formerly AC_000021.2) in GenBank's RefSeq database. This specific rCRS is the most commonly used and standard comparison sequence for human mtDNA research. It is 16569 bp in length, which includes one spacer at position 3107 to preserve the historical CRS position numbering. For publications, please cite NC_012920 as the rCRS. A duplicate of the rCRS exists as J01415.2 . This is a fully corrected update of the original Cambridge sequence and is identical to NC_012920.
