Pseudarthrobacter sulfonivorans strain Ar51, a psychotrophic bacterium isolated from the Tibet permafrost of China, can degrade crude oil and multi benzene compounds efficiently in low temperature. Here we report the complete genome sequence of this bacterium. The complete genome sequence of Pseudarthrobacter sulfonivorans strain Ar51, consisting of a cycle chromosome with a size of 5.04Mbp and a cycle plasmid with a size of 12.39kbp. The availability of this genome sequence allows us to investigate the genetic basis of crude oil degradation and adaptation to growth in a nutrient-poor permafrost environment.
