We report a 2.21-Mbp draft whole-genome sequence of Lactobacillus fermentum Qi6 (LfQi6). This strain demonstrates activity against pathogenic biofilms, enhances the skin barrier, and upregulates innate immune defenses. The genome sequence information of this strain will help to identify molecules that hold promise for the discovery of novel therapeutics for dermatological disorders.
