Taxono-genomics and Description of Gordonibacter massiliensis Sp. Nov., a New Bacterium Isolated From Stool of Healthy Patient

Using the taxono-genomics concept, we describe here a strictly anaerobic Gram-positive bacillus. This strain was isolated from the stool sample of a 50-year-old healthy Bedouin woman. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and the whole-genome sequencing showed that this isolate belonged to the genus Gordonibacter in the family Eggerthellaceae. Based on these criteria, we propose the creation of Gordonibacter massiliensis sp. nov., strain Marseille-P2775T (= CSUR P2775).
