Agromyces aureus AR33T is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped and motile bacterium belonging to the Microbacteriaceae family in the phylum Actinobacteria that was isolated from a former zinc/lead mining and processing site in Austria. In this study, the whole genome was sequenced and assembled combining sequences obtained from Illumina MiSeq and Sanger sequencing. The assembly resulted in the complete genome sequence which is 4,373,124 bp long and has a GC content of 70.1%. Furthermore, we performed a comparative genomic analysis with other related organisms: 6 Agromyces spp., 4 Microbacteriaceae spp. and 2 other members of the class Actinobacteria.
