A thermophilic bacterial strain having the ability to produce L-tryptophan enzymatically was isolated and identified from a less explored hot spring of West Bengal. The isolate was identified using polyphasic taxonomic approach as a strain of Bacillus licheniformis. Initially, the 16S rRNA gene and later the whole genome of the isolate was sequenced and submitted to the NCBI Gene Bank for future reference. The isolate showed considerable tryptophan synthase activity and may be a potential candidate for mass production of L-tryptophan by enzymatic means.
