Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH) degrader, Sphingobium sp. strain TKS, which was isolated from a γ-HCH-degrading microbial community. The genome of TKS consists of two chromosomes and nine plasmids. The lin genes for conversion of γ-HCH toβ-ketoadipate are dispersed on chromosome 1 and three out of the nine plasmids.
