Mong Cai pig (Sus scrofa) is the Vietnamese indigenous pig breed. The complete mitogenome of this breed has been sequenced and characterized. It is deposited in GenBank with accession number KX147100. There were 37 genes (13 protein-coding, 2 rRNA, 22 tRNA genes and a control (D loop) region) located in 16,711 bp of complete mitogenome. The phylogenetic relationships of both mitogenome and D loop region revealed the shortest genetic distance with Lantang pig breeds and close relationship to some other pig breeds in China regions. Taken together, the valuable data provide essential information for genetic and phylogenetic studies in Vietnamese indigenous animal.
