Chloroflexus sp. Y-400-fl
On Wednesday, March 11, 2015, the JGI computer systems will be undergoing maintenance that will affect the data transfer. Downloads with Globus service will not be available during that time period.


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.
