The genus of Bacteroides has been isolated from vertebrate animal feces. Bacteroides sp. KGMB 02408 was isolated from fecal samples obtained from a healthy Korean. The whole-genome sequence of Bacteroides sp. KGMB 02408 was analyzed using the PacBio Sequel platform. The genome comprises a 5,771,427 bp chromosome with a G + C content of 39.50%, 5,005 total genes, 18 rRNA genes, and 74 tRNA genes. Furthermore, we found that strain KGMB 02408 had some genes for oxidoreductases and menaquinone biosynthesis in its genome based on the result of genome analysis.
