Query: NC_012726:1751713 Sulfolobus islandicus M.16.4 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Sulfolobus islandicus; Sulfolobus; Sulfolobaceae; Sulfolobales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: This strain (also called Kamchatka #3) was isolated from a hot spring on the Kamchatka Penninsula, in the Russian Far East. Hyperthermophilic acidophilic sulfur-metabolizing archeon. Sulfolobus islandicus is a thermo-acidophilic archeae commonly identified in hot, acidic sulfur springs. This organism can grow both chemoautotrophically, using sulfur or hydrogen sulfide, and heterotrophically. S. islandicus can play host to a number of plasmids and viruses which may be useful in developing tools for genetic analysis. In addition, Sulfolobus islandicus isolates from different areas in Russia, Iceland, and the United States have been shown to be genetically distinct from each other making this organism useful for comparative analysis.

Subject: NC_008701:1259000 Pyrobaculum islandicum DSM 4184, complete genome

Lineage: Pyrobaculum islandicum; Pyrobaculum; Thermoproteaceae; Thermoproteales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Hyperthermophilic anaerobe. Pyrobaculum islandicum was isolated from water from a geothermal power plant in Iceland. This organism is able to grow lithotrophically and organotrophically using hydrogen or organic matter as the electron donors and sulfur, sulfite, and thiosulfate as electron acceptors.
