We report the complete genome sequence of Methanospirillum hungatei strain GP1 (DSM 1101). Strain GP1 oxidizes H2, formate, and secondary alcohols as the substrates for methanogenesis. Members of the genus are model organisms used to study syntrophic growth with bacterial partners, but secondary alcohol metabolism remains poorly studied.
