The genus Amphibacillus was established in 1990, and seven additional species were described in the past two decades. Amphibacillus jilinensis Y1(T) is a facultatively anaerobic and alkaliphilic bacterium isolated from a soda lake in China. Here we describe the structural and genetic features of the draft genome about the type strain Y1(T) (3,831,075 bp, with a G+C content of 37.27%). This is the first genome report of the Amphibacillus genus.
