Query: NC_013411:2975364 Geobacillus sp. Y412MC61, complete genome Lineage: Geobacillus; Geobacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Obsidian Hot Spring in Yellowstone; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile. Recent rDNA analysis and DNA-DNA hybridization studies using spore-forming thermophilic subsurface isolates from formation waters of oilfields in Russia, Kazakhstan and China provided enough evidence to define the phylogenetically distinct, physiologically and morphologically consistent taxon Geobacillus. Geobacillus species are chemo-organotrophic, obligately thermophilic, neutrophilic, motile, spore-forming, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic.

General Information: Bacillus coagulans, a lactic acid producing bacterium, was first identified as a spoilage agent of milk products. This organism can be used in the production of ethanol and lactic acid from cellulose and hemicellulose acid hydrolysate. Bacillus coagulans also produces other commercially important chemicals like cyclodextrins and amylases, and has been used as a probiotic in animal feed.
