The complete plastome sequence of Garcinia mangostana L. (Clusiaceae) is completed in this study (NCBI acc. no. KX822787). This is a first complete plastome sequence from the Clusiaceae. The complete plastome size is 158,179 bp in length and consists of a large single copy of 86,458 bp and a small single copy of 17,703 bp, separated by two inverted repeats of 27,009 bp. The G. mangostana plastome shows four minor structural modifications including infA gene loss, rpl32 gene loss, ycf3 gene intron loss and a 363 bp inversion between trnV-UAC and atpE gene. The plastome contains 111 genes, of which 77 are protein-coding genes, 30 are tRNA genes and four are rRNA genes. The average A-T content of the plastome is 63.9%. A total of 110 simple sequence loci are identified from the genome. Phylogenetic analysis reveals that G. mangostana is a sister group of Erythroxylum novogranatense (Erythroxylaceae) with 78% bootstrap support.
