Authors: Dörr de Quadros, Patricia and Fulthorpe, Roberta and Saati, Rosemary and Cerqueira, Vanessa and Bento, Fátima Menezes

Bacillus sp. strain UFRGS-B20 was isolated in 2012 from Brazilian land-farming soil contaminated with petrochemical oily sludge. This strain was subjected to hydrocarbon biodegradation tests, showing degradation rates of up to 60%. Here, we present the 6.82-Mb draft genome sequence of the strain, which contains 2,178 proteins with functional assignments.
