Abstract

Clostridium saccharobutylicum was employed for the production of acetone and butanol in South Africa until the 1970s. The genome comprises a single replicon (5,107,814 bp) harboring all the genes necessary for solvent production and the degradation of various organic compounds, such as fructose, cellobiose, sucrose, and mannose.
