Draft Genome Sequences of Four Thermophilic Spore Formers Isolated from a Dairy-Processing Environment

Genome Announc. 2016 Aug 11;4(4):e00757-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00757-16.


Spores of thermophilic spore-forming bacteria are a common cause of contamination in dairy products. Here, we report draft genome sequences of four thermophilic strains from a milk-processing plant or standard milk, namely, a Geobacillus thermoglucosidans isolate (TNO-09.023), Geobacillus stearothermophilus TNO-09.027, and two Anoxybacillus flavithermus isolates (TNO-09.014 and TNO-09.016).
