Query: NC_002689:46243 Thermoplasma volcanium GSS1, complete genome Lineage: Thermoplasma volcanium; Thermoplasma; Thermoplasmataceae; Thermoplasmatales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This strain is the type strain for this species, and was isolated from a solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) field. Thermophilic archaea. This organism is a thermophilic, acidophilic, archaea that was isolated from acidic hydrothermal vents on the shore of Aeolian Island of Vulcano, Italy. Growth of this facultative aerobe occurs at temperatures of 33-67°C with optimal at 60°C and pH of 1.0-4.0 (optimal 2.0).

General Information: This strain was isolated from a shallow marine solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) region at Vulcano Island, Italy. This organism is a strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at temperatures between 67 and 103 degrees C, with optimal growth at 100 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. This organism is highly motile due to a bundle of flagella.
