Bacillus subtilis is gram-positive model organism. Thus, much is known about this organism. The genome of Bacillus subtilis strain 168 has been sequenced.
Although the current part collection for B. subtilis is small, many are now using B. subtilis as a candidate host for synthetic devices and systems. Please read more about the advantages and disadvantages of using B. subtilis as a chassis.
