Izquierdo, J., Goodwin, L., Davenport, K., Teshima, H., Bruce, D., Detter, C., ... Lynd, L. R. (2012). Complete genome sequence of Clostridium clariflavum DSM 19732. Standards in Genomic Sciences, 6(1), 104-115. DOI: 10.4056/sigs.2535732
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 hemicellulose in addition to cellulose. 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.
