Query: NC_009975:1500978 Methanococcus maripaludis C6, complete genome

Lineage: Methanococcus maripaludis; Methanococcus; Methanococcaceae; Methanococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: This strain was isolated from intertidal sediments. Methanococcus maripaludis is a rapid growing hydrogenotrophic methanoarchaeon common in salt marshes, marine and estuarine environments in the Southeastern U.S.A. Methanococcus maripaludis is an obligately anaerobic, mesophilic, methane-producing archaeon. Growth on hydrogen and carbon dioxide results in the production of methane as a waste product. M. maripaludis stands out among methanogenic archaea as an ideal model species because of fast reproducible growth and effective genetic tools.

Subject: NC_015474:723553 Pyrococcus sp. NA2 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Pyrococcus; Pyrococcus; Thermococcaceae; Thermococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Pyrococcus has similar characteristics of other thermoautotrophican archaea such as Archaeoglobus, and Methanococcus in the respect that they are all thermophilic and anaerobic. Pyrococcus differs, however, because its optimal growth temperature is nearly 100 °C and dwells at a greater sea depth than the other archaea. Studying Pyrococcus helps give insight to possible mechanisms used to endure extreme environmental conditions like high temperatures and high pressure.
