Abstract

The exploration of the human microbiome was recently revolutionized by microbial culturomics and taxonogenomics. Thanks to this approach, we report here the main characteristics of Romboutsia timonensis strain Marseille-P326, a new bacterium isolated from the right human colon by colonoscopy in a 63-year-old French man with severe anaemia with melaena.
