The soil bacterium Psychrobacillus sp. strain AK 1817 was isolated from a tropical soil sample collected in Taiwan. Strain AK 1817 biotransforms the ergostane triterpenoid antcin K from the fungus Antrodia cinnamomea. The genome was sequenced using the PacBio RS II platform and consists of one chromosome of 4,096,020 bp, comprising 3,907 protein-coding genes, 75 tRNAs, 30 rRNAs, 5 noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), and 100 pseudogenes.
