Abstract

We report the draft genome sequence of Microbacterium sp. strain C448, isolated from agricultural soil with a decade of exposure to veterinary antibiotics on the basis of using sulfamethazine and other antibiotics as the sole sources of carbon. The genome sequence revealed that strain C448 harbors several antibiotic resistance genes, including sulI.
