Abstract

<italic>Lactobacillus amylovorus</italic> CACC736 was originated from swine feces in Korea. The complete genome sequences of the strain contained one circular chromosome (2,057,809 bp) with 38.2% GC content and two circular plasmids, namely, pCACC736-1 and pCACC736-2. The predicted protein-coding genes, which are encoding the CRISPR-associated proteins, biosynthesis of bacteriocin (helveticin J), and the related proteins of the bile, acid tolerance. Notably, the genes related to vitamin B-group biosynthesis (riboflavin and cobalamin) were also found in <italic>L. amylovorus</italic> CACC736. Collectively, the complete genome sequence of the <italic>L. amylovorus</italic> CACC736 will aid in the development of functional probiotics in the animal industry.
