Bacillus velezensis W1, isolated from two-spotted spider mites that had died naturally, is a patented strain with strong capability to cause mortality of the phytophagous mite Tetranychus urticae. The whole genome of W1 was completely sequenced with a combination of an Illumina Miseq platform (400-bp paired-end) with 2 × 250 bases and a Pacific Biosciences (PaBio) RS II Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT) sequencing platform using a 20 kb SMRTbellTM template library. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of B. velezensis W1, including one circular chromosome of 4,237,431 bp encoding 4,352 genes with GC content of 45.84%, providing insights into the genomic basis of its acaricidal activity and facilitating its application in red spider mite biocontrol.
