The [Clostridium] methylpentosum DSM 5476 whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession ACEC00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number ACEC01000000, and consists of sequences ACEC01000001-ACEC01000146.
Clostridium methylpentosum (GenBank Accession Number for 16S rDNA gene: Y18181) is a member of the Firmicutes division of the domain bacteria and has been isolated from human feces. The sequenced strain was obtained from Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen und Zellkulturen GmbH (DSMZ) (DSM 5476).
This is a Newbler assembly (http://www.454.com/enabling-technology/the-software.asp) comprised of 1/2 plate FLX PE 454 Data with a Q20 coverage of 22.2X.
This sequenced strain is part of a comprehensive, sequence-based survey of members of the normal human gut microbiota. A joint effort of the WU-GSC and the Center for Genome Sciences at Washington University School of Medicine, the purpose of this survey is to provide the general scientific community with a broad view of the gene content of 100 representatives of the major divisions represented in the intestine's microbial community. This information should provide a frame of reference for analyzing metagenomic studies of the human gut microbiome. Further details of this effort are described in a white paper entitled 'Extending Our View of Self: the Human Gut Microbiome Initiative (HGMI)' (http://www.genome.gov/Pages/Research/Sequencing/SeqProposals/HGMISeq.pdf). These studies are supported by National Human Genome Research Institute.
Coding sequences were predicted using GeneMark v3.3 and Glimmer2 v2.13. Intergenic regions not spanned by GeneMark and Glimmer2 were blasted against NCBI's non-redundant (NR) database and predictions generated based on protein alignments. tRNA genes were determined using tRNAscan-SE 1.23 and non-coding RNA genes by RNAmmer-1.2 and Rfam v8.0. Gene names are generated at the contig level and may not necessarily reflect any known order or orientation between contigs.
