Bacillus sp. strain W2 is a plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium isolated from saffron fields of Kashmir, India. Here, we report the draft genome sequence (3.9 Mb) of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain W2 having 65 contigs (3, 997, 511 bp), 4,163 coding sequences, and an average 46.45% GC content. Despite the 99% identity of the 16S rRNA gene with that of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens subsp. plantarum FZB42, the genome comparison revealed that only 48.7% of the W2 genome has homology with that of FZB42.
