NC_014624:171394 Eubacterium limosum KIST612 chromosome, complete genome
Host Lineage: Eubacterium limosum; Eubacterium; Eubacteriaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria
General Information: Eubacterium limosum KIST612 is an acetogenic bacterium isolated from an anaerobic digester and has a high growth rate on synthesis gas (CO; carbon monoxide) using it as a sole energy source. This organism produces acetate as well as butyrate and ethanol as fermentation products from syngas. Therefore, E. limosum KIST612 has been considered for a model strain for bioenergy production from syngas (obtained from biomass).
