We report here the draft whole-genome sequence of a fluorene-degrading bacterium, Sphingobium sp. strain LB126. The genes involved in the upper biodegradation pathway of fluorene are located on a plasmid, and the lower pathway that generates tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates is initiated by the meta-cleavage of protocatechuic acid that is chromosomally encoded.
