Although Trichococcus strains share high similarity in their 16S RNA gene, differences at genomic level seem to be much higher and low DNA-DNA hybridization values were observed for the different species. One fascinating physiological characteristic of Trichococcus species is the capability of growing at very low temperatures – specifically, Trichococcus patagoniensis can be a targeted species to
