Intensive efforts have been made to describe the human microbiome and its involvement in health and disease. Culturomics has been recently adapted to target formerly uncultured bacteria and other unclassified bacterial species. This approach enabled us to isolate in the current study a new bacterial species, Parabacteroides timonensis strain Marseille‐P3236T, from a stool sample of a healthy 39‐year‐old pygmy male. This strain, is an anaerobic, gram‐negative, nonspore‐forming motile rod. Its genome is made up of 6,483,434 bp with 43.41% G+C content, 5046 protein‐encoding genes, and 84 RNA genes. We herein provide the full description of Parabacteroides timonensis strain Marseille‐P3236T through the taxonogenomic approach.
