Nakamurella lactea DLS-10(T), isolated from rock in Korea, is one of the four type strains of the genus Nakamurella. In this study, we describe the high quality draft genome of N. lactea DLS-10(T) and its annotation. A summary of phenotypic data collected from previously published studies was also included. The genome of strain DLS-10(T) presents a size of 5.82 Mpb, 5100 protein coding genes, and a C + G content of 68.9%. Based on the genome analysis, emended description of N. lactea in terms of G + C content was also proposed.
