Abstract (englisch):
The thermophilic 'Geobacilli' are important sources of thermostable enzymes and other biotechnologically relevant macromolecules. The present work reports the high quality draft genome sequences of previously unsequenced type strains of Geobacillus uzenensis (DSM 23175T), G. thermocatenulatus (DSM 730T) and Parageobacillus galactosidasius (DSM 18751T). Phylogenomic analyses revealed that DSM 18751T and DSM 23175T represent later heterotypic synonyms of P. toebii and G. subterraneus, respectively, while DSM 730T represents the type strain for the species G. thermocatenulatus. These genome sequences will contribute towards a deeper understanding of the ecological and biological diversity and the biotechnological exploitation of the 'geobacilli'.
