Bottom Line: Here we describe its phenotypic characteristics and complete genome sequence.The 4 353 177 bp long genome exhibits a G + C content of 36.87% and contains 4394 protein-coding and 125 predicted RNA genes.Phylogenetically and genetically, strain Vm-c is a member of the genus Virgibacillus but is distinct enough to be classified as a new species.

ABSTRACT
Strain Vm-5(T) was isolated from the stool specimen of a 10-year-old Amazonian boy. This bacterium is a Gram-positive, strictly aerobic rod, motile by a polar flagellum. Here we describe its phenotypic characteristics and complete genome sequence. The 4 353 177 bp long genome exhibits a G + C content of 36.87% and contains 4394 protein-coding and 125 predicted RNA genes. Phylogenetically and genetically, strain Vm-c is a member of the genus Virgibacillus but is distinct enough to be classified as a new species. We propose the creation of V. massiliensis sp. nov., whose type strain is strain Vm-5(T) (CSUR P971 = DSM 28587).

fig2: Gram staining of Virgibacillus massiliensis strain Vm-5T.

Mentions: Colonies were obtained on our homemade culture medium after 24 hours of incubation in aerobic conditions at 37°C. The colonies of strain Vm-5T were circular, greyish, shiny and smooth, with a diameter of 2 to 5 mm. Cells stained Gram positive (Fig. 2). They were motile by polar flagella, were terminal spore forming and most commonly occurred as single cells or in pairs. Colonies were not haemolytic on blood-enriched agar.
