Here, we present the draft genome of the endofungal symbiotic bacterium Burkholderia contaminans 293K04B, isolated from Stachylidium bicolor 293K04 (Ascomycota). The fungus was originally isolated from the sponge Callyspongia cf. C. flammea. S. bicolor 293K04 produces the endolides A-B, bioactive cyclic peptides possibly biosynthesized by its endobacterium B. contaminans 293K04B.
