Halopiger djelfamassiliensis strain IIH2(T) sp. nov. is the type strain of Halopiger djelfamassiliensis sp. nov., a new species within the genus Halopiger. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated from evaporitic sediment of the hypersaline Lake Zahrez Gharbi in the Djelfa region (Algeria). H. Djelfamassiliensis is a Gram-negative, polymorphic-shaped and strictly aerobic archaeon. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation. The 3,771,216 bp long genome-contains 3,761 protein-coding and 51 RNA genes, including 4 rRNA genes.
