A database of curated fish mitochondrial sequences and presently covers mitogenome information of 1302 globally distributed fish species belonging to 297 families and 47 orders reported from saltwater and freshwater ecosystems. FMiR also contains other valuable information on each fish species such as habitat, distribution, occurrence, conservation status and taxonomy. FMiR is the workbench for finding SSR motifs, repeat orientation, sequence similarity search and annotation, identification of repeats loci and primer design. In addition, the database presents the relative abundance of microsatellite repeats in the mitogenomes. It is also possible to compare complete and individual components of genomes for deducing variation across fish species.
