We assembled the complete genome sequences of Bacillus pumilus strains 145 and 150a from Cuatrociénegas, Mexico. We detected genes codifying for proteins potentially involved in antagonism (bacteriocins) and defense mechanisms (abortive infection bacteriophage proteins and 4-azaleucine resistance). Both strains harbored prophage sequences. Our results provide insights into understanding the establishment of microbial interactions. Copyright © 2018 Zarza et al.
