Here we report the complete genome sequence of Staphylococcus xylosus S170, strong biofilm-producing strain, which comprised a single circular 2,910,005 bp chromosome and 32.97% G + C content. The genome included 2,674 protein-coding sequences, 22 rRNA genes, and 57 tRNA genes. Gene analysis of S. xylosus S170 could contribute to better understanding of biofilm-forming mechanisms.
