||"[Researchers] report the complete genome sequence of the model Sorangium strain S. cellulosum So ce56, which produces several natural products and has morphological and physiological properties typical of the genus. The circular genome, comprising 13,033,779 base pairs, is the largest bacterial genome sequenced to date." p.1282 left column 2nd paragraph:"At 13,033,799 base pairs, the circular chromosome is
the largest bacterial genome described to date by ~4 Mb. The S. cellulosum genome contains 9,367 predicted protein coding sequences (CDS), numbered from the initiation codon of the dnaA gene."
