Alistipes senegalensis strain JC50(T) is the type strain of A. senegalensis sp. nov., a new species within the Alistipes genus. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated from the fecal flora of an asymptomatic patient. A. senegalensis is an anaerobic Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation. The 4,017,609 bp long genome (1 chromosome, but no plasmid) contains 3,113 protein-coding and 50 RNA genes, including 5 rRNA genes.
