Genus Clostridium: Towards Sustainable Production of Biofuels

Sperker / Institution: Nigel P. Minton / University of Nottingham (Reino Unido) Abstract: The genus Clostridium is one of the largest amongst prokaryotes. An extremely diverse assemblage of species, they are composed of Gram-positive, anaerobic, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacteria. The antics of a few (for example, Clostridium difficile, Clostridium botulinum and Clostridium tetani) have given the genus […]
