Query: NC_012883:287965 Thermococcus sibiricus MM 739, complete genome Lineage: Thermococcus sibiricus; Thermococcus; Thermococcaceae; Thermococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Thermococcus sibiricus is a hyperthermophilic anaerobic archaeon isolated from a well of the never flooded oil-bearing Jurassic horizon of the high-temperature Samotlor oil reservoir (Western Siberia). The organism is indigenous to the reservoir and survived over geologic time by metabolizing buried organic matter from the original oceanic sediment.

General Information: This organism was isolated from a hydrothermal vent at Okinawa Trough in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 1395 m. This organism is an obligate anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at 80-102 degrees C with optimal growth at 98 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. Presence of elemental sulfur has been found to greatly stimulate growth.
