The intestinal protistan parasite Blastocystis is characterized by an extensive genetic variability with 17 subtypes (ST1-ST17) described to date. Only the whole genome of a human ST7 isolate was previously sequenced. Here we report the draft genome sequence of Blastocystis ST4-WR1 isolated from a laboratory rodent at Singapore.
