Query: NC_009776:1249350 Ignicoccus hospitalis KIN4/I, complete genome Lineage: Ignicoccus hospitalis; Ignicoccus; Desulfurococcaceae; Desulfurococcales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Ignicoccus hospitalis Kin4/I was isolated from gravel obtained from the shallow marine hydrothermal system of the Kolbeinsey Ridge, north of Iceland. Hyperthermophilic archaeon. Ignicoccus hospitalis, an anaerobic, hyperthermophilic, chemoautolithotroph, uses hydrogen to reduce elemental sulfur and produce hydrogen sulfide. This organism is also moderately halophilic and acidophilic. Ignicoccus hospitalis is the host organism for Nanoarchaeum equitans.

General Information: Sulfolobus acidocaldarius DSM 639 was isolated from and acidic hot spring in Yellowstone National Park. Extreme thermoacidophilic sulfur-oxidizing archaeon. This organsim is an extreme thermoacidophilic, sulfur-oxidizing archaeon commonly found in hot springs growing at very high temperatures. This obligate aerobe is immotile and grows at a temperature of 55-85 degrees C with optimal growth at 70-75 degrees C. The pH for growth is 1-6 with an optimum pH 2-3.
