Gram-positive harmless bacterium found in soil. Its cell envelope consists of a thick peptidoglycan wall and and cell membrane. It is capable of producing endospores resistant to adverse environmental conditions such as heat and desiccation and is widely used for the production of enzymes and specialty chemicals.

Strain W23 is a "legacy" strain which has been cited in the scientific literature since the early 1960s. Its origin is unknown, but it belongs to a different subspecies than the common B.subtilis workhorse strain 168, is prototrophic and streptomycin-resistant. Many modern laboratory strains are hybrids with W23 islands in a 168 genomic background (adapted from PMID 18723616).
