Abstract:
Here we present the draft genome of a distantly related member within the phylum Bacteriodetes, "Candidatus Bacteroides periocalifornicus." The draft genome sequence was assembled with metagenomic data from a patient with periodontitis. The closest relative has less than 68% average nucleic identity, supporting a novel family within Bacteriodetes.
