Culturomics has allowed the isolation of a significant number of new bacterial species from the human gut microbiota and proved to be a valuable complement to culture-independent techniques. Using this culture-based approach, a new bacterial species has been isolated from a stool sample of a 39-year-old healthy Pygmy male and described using the taxonogenomic strategy. Cells of strain Marseille-P4356T are Gram-stain negative cocci. The strain grows optimally at 37 °C and is catalase positive but oxidase negative. Its 16S rRNA gene sequence exhibited 92.96% sequence similarity with Dysgonomonas gadei strain JCM 16698T (NR_113134.1), currently its phylogenetically closest species that has been validly named. The genome of strain Marseille-P4356T is 3,472,011 bp long with 37.3 mol% G+C content. Phenotypic, biochemical, proteomic, genomic and phylogenetic analyses, clearly demonstrate that strain Marseille-P4356T (= CCUG 71356T = CSUR P4356T) represents a new species within the genus Dysgonomonas, for which we propose the name Dysgonomonas massiliensis sp. nov.
