Interpretive Summary: Here we report the genome sequence of Bacillus mojavensis strain RRC101, isolated from a maize kernel. This strain is antagonistic to the fumonisin toxin producing plant pathogen Fusarium verticillioides, and grows within maize tissue, suggesting potential as an biocontrol agent that grows within the plant.
