Query: NC_009135:1 Methanococcus maripaludis C5, complete genome Lineage: Methanococcus maripaludis; Methanococcus; Methanococcaceae; Methanococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Anaerobic methane-producing archaeon. 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. M. maripaludis stands out among methanogenic archaea as an ideal model species because of fast reproducible growth and effective genetic tools.
