The free-living amoeba Balamuthia mandrillaris is a rare but highly lethal agent of amoebic encephalitis in humans and many other mammalian species. Here, we announce the first draft genome sequence of the original 1990 isolate cultured from the brain of a deceased mandrill baboon. Copyright © 2015 Detering et al.
