The Chlorobi-1 RNA motif is a conserved RNA secondary structure identified by bioinformatics.[1] It is predicted to be used only by Chlorobi, a phylum of bacteria. The motif consists of two stem-loops that are followed by an apparent rho-independent transcription terminator. The motif is presumed to function as an independently transcribed non-coding RNA.

A number of other RNAs were identified in the same study, including:[1]
