Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) produces pore forming toxins that have been used for Diptera, Lepidoptera and Coleoptera pest control in agriculture for many years. This work describes the draft genome sequence of B. thuringiensis S908, which contains the genes cry1B, Vpa, Vpb and Sip. Genes coding for bacteriocin, enhancin, plant growth promotion pathway and tyrosinase were identified


cry toxins, vip toxins, ngs, bioinformatics.
