Project description:In this study, we sequenced the complete genome of the Clostridium difficile type strain DSM 1296(T). A combination of single-molecule real-time (SMRT) and Illumina sequencing technology revealed the presence of one chromosome and two extrachromosomal elements, the bacteriophage phiCDIF1296T and a putative plasmid-like structure harboring genes of another bacteriophage.
Project description:Clostridium saccharoperbutylacetonicum strain DSM 14923 is known as a butanol-producing bacterium. Various organic compounds such as glucose, fructose, sucrose, mannose, and cellobiose are fermented. The genome consists of one chromosome and one circular megaplasmid. C. saccharoperbutylacetonicum was used in industrial fermentation processes to produce the solvents acetone, butanol, and ethanol.
Project description:Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Clostridium termitidis strain CT1112 (DSM 5398), a mesophilic, cellulolytic bacterium that can utilize a variety of sugars, as well as pure cellulose, as a sole carbon source; it also synthesizes fermentation end products with potential industrial applications.
Project description:Clostridium clariflavum is a Cluster III Clostridium within the family Clostridiaceae isolated from thermophilic anaerobic sludge (Shiratori et al, 2009). This species is of interest because of its similarity to the model cellulolytic organism Clostridium thermocellum and for the ability of environmental isolates to break down cellulose and hemicellulose. Here we describe features of the 4,897,678 bp long genome and its annotation, consisting of 4,131 protein-coding and 98 RNA genes, for the type strain DSM 19732.
Project description:Clostridium acetobutylicum is an important microorganism for solvent production. We report the complete genome sequence of C. acetobutylicum DSM 1731, a genome with multireplicon architecture. Comparison with the sequenced type strain C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824, the genome of strain DSM1731 harbors a 1.7-kb insertion and a novel 11.1-kb plasmid, which might have been acquired during evolution.
Project description:Clostridium pasteurianum, an anaerobic bacterium able to utilize atmospheric free nitrogen for biosynthesis, has recently been proven to be a promising producer of chemicals and fuels, such as 1,3-propanediol and n-butanol. Here, we report the high-quality draft genome sequence of DSM 525, a type strain of C. pasteurianum.
Project description:Clostridium stercorarium strain DSM 8532 is a thermophilic bacterium capable of efficiently degrading polysaccharides in plant biomass and converting the resulting sugars to ethanol and acetate. The complete genome sequence of 2.96 Mbp reveals a multitude of genes for hydrolytic enzymes and enables further study of the organism and its enzymes, and their exploitation for biotechnological processes.
Project description:Clostridium autoethanogenum is an anaerobic, autotrophic acetogen that is capable of converting CO and CO2 into ethanol and acetate. Here we report the draft genome sequence of C. autoethanogenum JA1-1 strain DSM 10061 (4.5 Mbp; G+C content, 37.5%) and the findings obtained from annotation of the genome sequence.
Project description:Clostridium estertheticum subsp. laramiense type strain DSM 14864 (ATCC 51254) was isolated from vacuum-packaged refrigerated spoiled beef. This report describes the generation and annotation of the 5.0-Mb draft genome sequence of C. estertheticum subsp. laramiense DSM 14864T.
Project description:The first complete genome sequence of Clostridium sporogenes DSM 795(T), a nontoxigenic surrogate for Clostridium botulinum, was determined in a single contig using the PacBio single-molecule real-time technology. The genome (4,142,990 bp; G+C content, 27.98%) included 86 sets of >1,000-bp identical sequence pairs and 380 tandem repeats.
