Massilia sp. are aerobic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria that are found in air, water, and soils. Here we
describe the draft genome sequence of Massilia sp. KIM, isolated from the South African grassland soils. The total
length of the genome was estimated at 5.73 Mb, comprised of 17 contigs.
The draft genome has been deposited
in the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under the accession MVAD10000000 and is available for download at: https://
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/MVAD00000000. Additionally, the raw short reads are available in the NCBI
SRA database under the accession number: SRR5469241.
