Query: NC_011653:1616423 Thermosipho africanus TCF52B, complete genome

Lineage: Thermosipho africanus; Thermosipho; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was isolated from the Troll oil formation in the North Sea. Thermosipho africanus, 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. Thermosipho africanus has been isolated from marine hydrothermal systems and oil reservoir production waters.

Subject: NC_011978:1812000 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.
