The complete genome sequence of the Nocardia farcinica type strain was obtained by combining Illumina HiSeq and PacBio reads, producing a single 6.29-Mb chromosome and 2 circular plasmids. Bioinformatic analysis identified 5,991 coding sequences, including putative genes for virulence, microbial resistance, transposons, and biosynthesis gene clusters.
