Query: NC_014624:2668157 Eubacterium limosum KIST612 chromosome, complete genome 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).

General Information: This strain was isolated from commercial yogurt in 1974 in the United Kingdom. Lactic acid producing bacterium used in cheese and yogert production. Streptococci are Gram-positive, nonmotile, nonsporeforming, catalase-negative cocci that occur in pairs or chains. Members of this genus vary widely in pathogenic potential. Most streptococci are facultative anaerobes, and some are obligate anaerobes. Serologic grouping is based on antigenic differences in cell wall carbohydrates, in cell wall pili-associated protein, and in the polysaccharide capsule in group B streptococci. This organism is a lactic acid bacteria often used as a starter culture for fermented dairy products including yogurt and cheese.
