The bacterium Clostridium thermocellum BC1, a thermophilic, anaerobic bacterium of the family Clostridiaceae, was isolated from a compost treatment site in Germany. It is able to grow efficiently on cellulose and cellodextrins. The draft genome sequence of C. thermocellum BC1 has been established and provides the genetic basis for application of this microorganism in thermophilic degradation of cellulosic biomass.
