Query: NC_002689:46243 Thermoplasma volcanium GSS1, complete genome Lineage: Thermoplasma volcanium; Thermoplasma; Thermoplasmataceae; Thermoplasmatales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This strain is the type strain for this species, and was isolated from a solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) field. Thermophilic archaea. This organism is a thermophilic, acidophilic, archaea that was isolated from acidic hydrothermal vents on the shore of Aeolian Island of Vulcano, Italy. Growth of this facultative aerobe occurs at temperatures of 33-67°C with optimal at 60°C and pH of 1.0-4.0 (optimal 2.0).

General Information: This strain was first isolated from salt marsh sediment near Pawley's Island, South Carolina, USA. A methane-producing archaeaon. Methanococcus maripaludis is an obligately anaerobic, mesophilic, methane-producing archaeon. Growth on hydrogen and carbon dioxide results in the production of methane as a waste product. Stands out among methanogenic archaea as an ideal model species because of fast reproducible growth and effective genetic tools.
