Enterococcus faecalis strain DM01 was isolated from meju, a traditional Korean fermented soybean product. The strain did not exhibit resistance to eight antibiotics (ampicillin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, gentamicin, penicillin G, tetracycline, and vancomycin), biofilm formation, and hemolytic activity. The genome of strain DM01 consists a single circular 2,785,968-bp chromosome with a G + C content of 37.68%. The complete genomic sequence of strain DM01 provides genetic information to support the absence of antibiotic resistance, biofilm formation, and hemolytic activity.
