Query: NC_000854:191705 Aeropyrum pernix K1, complete genome

Lineage: Aeropyrum pernix; Aeropyrum; Desulfurococcaceae; Desulfurococcales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: This organism, which was the first strictly aerobic hyperthermophilic archaeon sequenced, was isolated from a coastal solfataric (volcanic hydrothermal area that gives off sulfuric gases) thermal vent at Kodakara-Jima Island, Japan in 1993. Aeropyrum pernix is an aerobic hyperthermophile. This organism grows between 70 and 100 degrees C , with optimal growth at 90-95 degrees C, pH 5-9 with a optimum of pH 7.0, and a salinity of 3.5%. This organism is highly motile and cells are often surrounded by pili-like appendages. Doubling time is 200 minutes in optimal growth conditions. It does not require sulfur-containing compounds for growth, and thus does not form hydrogen sulfide during growth.

Subject: NC_003551:860862 Methanopyrus kandleri AV19, complete genome

Lineage: Methanopyrus kandleri; Methanopyrus; Methanopyraceae; Methanopyrales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Thermophilic methanogenic archaeon. This organism has been found at Guaymas hot vents at a depth of 2000, at a depth of 1006 m on the Kolbeinsey Ridge north of Iceland and on hydrothermically heated black smoker walls at a depth of 3650 m at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. This methanogen grows chemolithoautotrophically at 80-110ÂșC in a hydrogen-carbon dioxide atmosphere.
