<i>Bacillus cereus</i> is a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium possessing an important and historical record as a human-pathogenic bacterium. However, several strains of this species exhibit interesting potential to be used as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of <i>B. cereus</i> strain CITVM-11.1, which consists of 37 contig sequences, accounting for 5,746,486 bp (with a GC content of 34.8%) and 5,752 predicted protein-coding sequences. Several of them could potentially be involved in plant-bacterium interactions and may contribute to the strong antagonistic activity shown by this strain against the charcoal root rot fungus, <i>Macrophomina phaseolina</i>. This genomic sequence also showed a number of genes that may confer this strain resistance against several polluting heavy metals and for the bioconversion of mycotoxins.
