The global antimicrobial drug resistance crisis requires urgency in searching for more effective broad-spectrum antimicrobial drugs. Here, we present a complete circular genome sequence and a plasmid of an antimicrobial-producing isolate, Bacillus velezensis strain Sam8H1, from the Makgadikgadi saltpans in Botswana. Bioinformatic analyses revealed 12 putative secondary metabolite biosynthetic gene clusters important for genome-guided drug discovery studies.
