Query: NC_012491:5628000 Brevibacillus brevis NBRC 100599, complete genome Lineage: Brevibacillus brevis; Brevibacillus; Paenibacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Strictly aerobic, Gram-positive, spore-forming soil bacterium. When faced with nutritional stress, this species develops genetic competance and motility, sporulates, and produces antibiotics during the transition between the exponential and stationary phases. The genes involved in antibiotic production have been well characterized and have led to the commercial production of tyrocidine and gramicidin.

General Information: Temp: Hyperthermophile; Temp: 55 - 65C. The organism is able to utilizing a wide range of substrates, including pentose (C5) and hexose (C6) in agricultural waste and is tolerant to high ethanol concentrations. These properties make it an attractive candidate for bioethanol production.
