A Paenibacillus elgii strain isolated from soil samples from Cerrado, Brazil, showed antimicrobial activity. Its genome sequence was acquired (GS20 FLX Titanium 454 platform) and comprises 108 contigs (N50, 198,427 bp) and 6,810 predicted sequences. Here, we shed some light on the antimicrobial genes of the strain, including a nonribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) module identified as part of a pelgipeptin gene cluster.
