The complete mitogenome of the stalk-forming diatom Didymosphenia geminata collected from Mineral County, WV, USA was sequenced on the Ion Torrent PGM and Proton sequencers. The D. geminata mitogenome is 37,765 bp and encodes 35 protein coding genes, 25 tRNAs, and both large and small subunit ribosomal RNA genes. The nad11 gene is split into two domains as observed in Phaeodactylum tricornutum, and D. geminata also lacks the large repeat region found in the P. tricornutum mitogenome. Gene order and content within the D. geminata mitogenome is similar to the diatom Berkeleya fennica.
