Anaerobic Gram-negative bacterium Prevotella intermedia is a part of normal flora of the oral cavity and associated with various types of oral and systemic diseases. We present here a draft genome sequence of P. intermedia ATCC 15032, originally isolated from cervicofacial actinomycosis. The genome is 2,848,426 bp in length and has a GC content of 43.45%. The genome includes 2,358 protein-coding genes, 5 rRNAs, and 43 tRNA. The sequence information will provide important clues in understanding the genome diversity within the bacterial species, and genetic basis for phenotypic differences among P. intermedia strains.
