Title: Complete genome sequence of Methanospirillum hungatei type strain JF1

Methanospirillum hungatei strain JF1 is a hydrogenotrophic methanogen that belongs to the order Methanomicrobiales. Members of the genus Methanospirillum are commonly encountered in syntrophic association with fermenting microorganisms. M. hungatei serves as the model partner organism in laboratory cocultures that syntrophically oxidize fatty and aromatic acids. Furthermore, when grown syntrophically, M. hungatei rapidly uses the hydrogen or formate produced by its syntrophic partner and maintains the concentration of these metabolites at very low levels so that the degradation of the syntrophic substrate is thermodynamically favorable.
