Bacillus thuringiensis is a spore-forming bacterium that is a type of insect pathogen used in the field of microbial insect control. B. thuringiensis HS18-1 has effective toxicity for Lepidoptera and Diptera insects. It contains different types of parasporal crystal genes, including cry4Cb1, cry50Aa1, cry69Ab1, cry30Ga, cry30Ea, cry70Aa, cry71Aa, cry72Aa, cry56Aa and cry54Ba. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of B. thuringiensis HS18-1, which contains one circular gapless chromosome and nine circular plasmids. Copyright © 2015. Published by Elsevier B.V.
