Method Abstract: "Here, [investigators] examine the niches of representatives of both phyla [Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes] in vivo. Finished genome sequences were generated from Eubacterium rectale and E. eligens, which belong to Clostridium Cluster XIVa, one of the most common gut Firmicute clades."
Comments p.5860 left column bottom paragraph: "Comparative Genomic Studies of Human Gut-Associated Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes: [Investigators] produced finished genome sequences for Eubacterium rectale, which contains a single 3,449,685-bp chromosome encoding 3,627 predicted proteins, and Eubacterium eligens, which contains a 2,144,190-bp chromosome specifying 2,071 predicted proteins, plus 2 plasmids (Table S1). [They] also analyzed 25 recently sequenced gut genomes, including (i) 9 sequenced human gut-derived Bacteroidetes [includes the finished genomes of B. thetaiotaomicron, B. fragilis, B. vulgatus, and Parabacteroides distasonis, plus deep draft assemblies of the B. caccae, B. ovatus, B. uniformis, B. stercoris and P. merdae genomes generated as part of the human gut microbiome initiative (HGMI) (], and (ii) 16 other human gut Firmicutes where deep draft assemblies were available through the HGMI (see Fig. S1 for a phylogenetic tree)."
