Bacillus thuringiensis is an important bacterium which shows insecticide action against several pests. This work describes the draft genome sequence of B. thuringiensis S906, that showed toxicity against insects from Lepidoptera order (Anticarsia gemmatalis, Helicoverpa armigera, Plutella xylostella and Spodoptera frugiperda), and Coleoptera order (Anthonomus grandis) which contains the genes cry1Ba, Vpa, Vpb and Spp1A. Genes coding for bacteriocin, plant growth promotion pathway, tyrosinase and enhancin were also identified.
