Streptomyces venezuelae[1] is a species of soil-dwelling[2] Gram-positive bacterium of the genus Streptomyces.[3] S. venezuelae is filamentous. In its spore-bearing stage, hyphae perfuse both above ground as aerial hyphae and in the soil substrate.[3] Chloramphenicol, the first antibiotic to be manufactured synthetically on a large scale, was originally derived from S. venezuelae.[2][4][5]
