A draft genome sequence of Halobacteriovorax sp. strain JY17 was assembled from a metagenomic data set. The 3.47-Mbp genome of this unusual predatory bacterium contains 3,263 protein-coding sequences, 33 tRNAs, and 2 copies each of the 16S, 23S, and 5S rRNA genes. This is only the third sequenced representative of this genus.
