Query: NC_009486:1737703 Thermotoga petrophila RKU-1 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Thermotoga petrophila; Thermotoga; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria

General Information: Thermotoga petrophila strain RKU-1 is an anaerobic thermophile, isolated from the production waters of the Kubiki oil reservoir in Niigata, Japan. This organism, a member of the Thermotogales, has the characteristic morphology of one or more cells contained in a sheath-like envelope which extends beyond the cell wall. Preliminary sequencing of Thermotogales genomes has identified extensive horizontal gene transfer between these organisms and the Archaea.

Subject: NC_011978:1500663 Thermotoga neapolitana DSM 4359, complete genome

Lineage: Thermotoga neapolitana; Thermotoga; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria

General Information: This hyperthermophilic organism was first isolated from a black smoker in the bay near Naples, Italy in 1986. This organism, like other Thermotoga, produces a vast quantity of hydrogen in batch culture. It is being considered for use in projects to utilize waste carboydrates for the production of hydrogen gas for industrial purposes. A number of thermostable enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase are also produced by this bacterium and may be of use for industrial purposes.
