Genome sequence of the filamentous actinomycete Kitasatospora viridifaciens.

Authors: Ramijan, Karina and van Wezel, Gilles P and Claessen, Dennis

The vast majority of antibiotics are produced by filamentous soil bacteria called actinomycetes. We report here the genome sequence of the tetracycline producer "Streptomyces viridifaciens" DSM 40239. Given that this species has the hallmark signatures characteristic of the Kitasatospora genus, we previously proposed to rename this organism Kitasatospora viridifaciens.
