Bacillus badius is a Gram-positive aerobic spore-forming bacillus. Originally isolated from human intestines and described in 1919,[1] B. badius was later found in a sample of figs.[2] Novel enzymes, including a restriction enzyme[3] and penicillin G acylase, have been purified from this bacterial species.[4]
