Li N, Yang J, Chai C, Yang S, Jiang W, Gu Y. Complete genome sequence of Clostridium carboxidivorans P7(T), a syngas-fermenting bacterium capable of producing long-chain alcohols. J Biotechnol. 2015;21144-45.
Clostridium carboxidivorans P7(T) is an anaerobe that can ferment syngas (mainly CO or CO2 and H2) to produce acids (acetic and butyric acid), ethanol and long-chain alcohols (butanol and hexanol). Here, the first complete genome sequence for C. carboxidivorans P7(T) is presented. This anaerobic bacterium harbors a 5,732,880bp circular chromosome and a 19,902bp mega-plasmid with 4951 and 22 coding DNA sequence (CDS), respectively.
