The Gram-negative bacterium Stenotrophomonas bentonitica BII-R7 T was isolated from bentonite formations. Like other species within the genus Stenotrophomonas , strain BII-R7 T possesses high tolerance to numerous heavy metals, suggesting potential for bioremediation purposes. The draft genome sequence reported here comprises 4.37 Mb with a G+C content of 66.5% and 3,796 predicted protein-coding sequences.
