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).

Subject: NC_015474:723553 Pyrococcus sp. NA2 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Pyrococcus; Pyrococcus; Thermococcaceae; Thermococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Pyrococcus has similar characteristics of other thermoautotrophican archaea such as Archaeoglobus, and Methanococcus in the respect that they are all thermophilic and anaerobic. Pyrococcus differs, however, because its optimal growth temperature is nearly 100 °C and dwells at a greater sea depth than the other archaea. Studying Pyrococcus helps give insight to possible mechanisms used to endure extreme environmental conditions like high temperatures and high pressure.
