Bifidobacterium longum subsp. longum DS0950 (B. longum DS0950) was isolated from infant feces and has been reported to be effective in preventing obesity. The whole-genome sequence of B. longum DS0950 was obtained using the PacBio RS II platform, and it was consists of a single chromosome of 2,433,092 bp. The B. longum DS0950 contains genes associated with the synthesis of bacteriocins and a series of genes capable of producing xylitol from ribulose-5-phosphate.
