Parvimonas micra is Gram-positive, strict anaerobic, non-motile, and non-spore forming coccus. It is a member of oral flora and is related to oral infectious diseases as well as systemic diseases. P. micra KCOM 1037 (= ChDC B276) was isolated from human postoperative maxillary cyst lesion. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of P. micra KCOM 1037.
