Abstract Bacillus thuringiensis S3076-1 can produce some parasporal crystal with a variety of forms, which may have insecticidal activity to Lepidoptera insects. In this study, the de novo whole genome sequence of Bt S3076-1 was carried out by employing Illumina HiSeq 2000 and generated 1.42 Gb raw data. Through the original reads data quality control, filtering and SOAPdenovo short sequence assembly to get a total of 231 scaffolds, the genome size was 6.42 Mb, N50 length was 97325 bp, GC content of 34.81%. The genomic information of 14 Bt strains in NCBI database were selected as the reference, and the genomic sequences of Scaffolds were assembled to obtain the 3 replicators. Among them, the size of the genome was 5.72 Mb, the content of GC was about 35.00%, and the length of the genomic sequences of the four plasmids were 181 kb and 518 kb, and the GC contents were 33.10% and 33.13%, respectively. Based on the genome sequence and annotation information, the genome of the visual sketch was created by GCviewer server. The whole genome sequencing and construction of Bt S3076-1 provide the basis for the functional study of the strain, and contribute to the identification of Bt S3076-1 insecticidal toxin protein.
