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 thermophilic strain (PT; DSM 6194) was isolated from anaerobic digester sludge and is the type strain for the species. Produces methane from acetate. Methanosaeta thermophila is a thermophilic methanogen found widely distributed in the environment. This organism can metabolize acetate into methane and may be useful as a producer of biofuels.
