We isolated Thermus thermophilus strains HB5002 and HB5008 from Mine Hot Spring in Japan. Whole-genome sequencing revealed that they showed ∼100% average nucleotide identity to each other, ≥98.53% to the T. thermophilus strains originating from the same spot but ≤97.64% to the T. thermophilus strains from geographically different places in Japan.
