Abstract

Clostridium sporogenes DSM 795 is the type strain of the species Clostridium sporogenes, first described by Metchnikoff in 1908. It is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, anaerobic bacterium isolated from human faeces and belongs to the proteolytic branch of clostridia. C. sporogenes attracts special interest because of its potential use in a bacterial therapy for certain cancer types. Genome sequencing and annotation revealed several gene clusters coding for proteins involved in anaerobic degradation of amino acids, such as glycine and betaine via Stickland reaction. Genome comparison showed that C. sporogenes is closely related to C. botulinum. The genome of C. sporogenes DSM 795 consists of a circular chromosome of 4.1 Mb with an overall GC content of 27.81 mol% harboring 3,744 protein-coding genes, and 80 RNAs.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 July 2015.
All research outputs
#2,858,011
of 5,382,699 outputs
Outputs from Standards in Genomic Sciences
#138
of 355 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#104,069
of 190,035 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Standards in Genomic Sciences
#17
of 25 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,382,699 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 355 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 190,035 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 25 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
