We announce here the genome sequence of a marine acidophilic sulfur-oxidizing bacterium, Acidithiobacillus sp. strain SH. The bacterium has potential for use in bioleaching of sulfide ores from seawater and contains a noble gene for thiosulfate quinone oxidoreductase in addition to specific genes for the oxidation of reduced inorganic sulfur compounds.
