We report the complete genome sequence of Amycolatopsis japonica MG417-CF17T (=DSM 44213T) which was identified as the producer of (S,S)-N,N′-ethylenediaminedisuccinic acid during a screening for phospholipase C inhibitors. The genome of A. japonica MG417-CF17T consists of two replicons: the chromosome (8,961,318bp, 68.89% G+C content) and the plasmid pAmyja1 (92,539bp, 68.23% G+C content), encoding a total of 8422 protein coding genes. Analysis of the sequence data revealed 30 clusters encoding the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites.
