Chloroflexus sp. Y-400-fl
On February 3, 2015 and February 4, 2015 the JGI computer systems will be undergoing maintenance and access to the Genome Portal will be limited. Sorry for the inconvenience.


The phylum Chloroflexi is heterogeneous with regard to metabolic properties, exhibiting two different pathways for carbon fixation (reductive pentose phosphate (Calvin cycle) and 3-hydroxy-propionate pathways), and their photosynthetic apparatus is a hybrid between that of green sulfur bacteria and purple bacteria.
