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_009033:791515 Staphylothermus marinus F1, complete genome

Lineage: Staphylothermus marinus; Staphylothermus; Desulfurococcaceae; Desulfurococcales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Hyperthermophilic archaeon. This organism was isolated from hydrothermal marine sediment from Vulcano Island in Italy. Staphylothermus marinus is heterotrophic and requires sulfur, which is reduced to H2S, for growth.
