Brevibacterium

(brev'ē-bak-tēr'ē-um),
A bacterial genus of nonmotile, non-spore-forming, gram-positive rods found as normal human skin flora and in raw milk and on the surface of cheeses; some species, recovered from patients with septicemia and from the peritoneum of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis, appear to be opportunistic human pathogens.

Based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the most abundant Actinobacteria genera were Streptomyces (86.84%), followed by Nocardiopsis (4.93%), Brevibacterium (1.64%), Microbacterium (1.64%), Tsukamurella (1.64%), Arthrobacter (0.66%), Brachybacterium (0.66%), Nocardia (0.66%), Rhodococcus (0.66%), Kocuria (0.33%), Nocardioides (0.33%), and Pseudonocardia (0.33%).
The analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequence of fifteen isolates revealed the presence of other bacterial genera such as Staphylococcus, Serratia, Microbacterium, Kluyvera, Arthrobacter, Stenotrophomonas, Exiguobacterium, Micrococcus, Klebsiella, Massilia, Erwinia, Brevibacterium halotolerans, and Uncultured bacterium (table 1).

Red Abbot cheese is made with Wisconsin cow's milk using an ancient Cistercian Monk recipe where the rind of the cheese is washed with Brevibacterium linens to give it a subtle red hue and a robust flavor that compliments the smooth interior.
As the cheese ripened, Brevibacterium and Brachybacterium plus Penicillium and Scopulariopsis fungi became prominent inhabitants of the rind.
