A draft genome sequence of Streptomyces incarnatus NRRL8089, which produces the nucleoside antibiotic sinefungin, is described here. The genome contains 8,897,465 bp in 76 contigs and 8,266 predicted genes. Interestingly, the genome encodes an open reading frame for selenocysteine-containing formate dehydrogenase-O and the selenoprotein biosynthetic gene cluster selABCD.
