Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Gemmatimonadetes are a family of bacteria, given their own phylum (Gemmatimonadetes). The first member of this phylum was discovered in 2003 in activated sludge in a sewage treatment system. The bacteria was named Gemmatimonas aurantiaca and is a gram-negative rod-shaped aerobe that appears to replicate by budding. [1]
