Magnetotactic bacteria represent a valuable model system for the study of microbial biomineralization and magnetotaxis. Here, we report two metagenome-assembled genome sequences of uncultivated magnetotactic bacteria belonging to the order Magnetococcales. These genomes contain nearly complete magnetosome gene clusters responsible for magnetosome biomineralization.
