Genome sequence of the pattern-forming social bacterium Paenibacillus dendritiformis C454 chiral morphotype.

J Bacteriol 2012 Apr;194(8):2127-8

The Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Paenibacillus dendritiformis is a Gram-positive, soil-dwelling, spore-forming social microorganism. An intriguing collective faculty of this strain is manifested by its ability to switch between different morphotypes, such as the branching (T) and the chiral (C) morphotypes. Here we report the 6.3-Mb draft genome sequence of the P. dendritiformis C454 chiral morphotype.
