Query: NC_012726:1292671 Sulfolobus islandicus M.16.4 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Sulfolobus islandicus; Sulfolobus; Sulfolobaceae; Sulfolobales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: This strain (also called Kamchatka #3) was isolated from a hot spring on the Kamchatka Penninsula, in the Russian Far East. Hyperthermophilic acidophilic sulfur-metabolizing archeon. Sulfolobus islandicus is a thermo-acidophilic archeae commonly identified in hot, acidic sulfur springs. This organism can grow both chemoautotrophically, using sulfur or hydrogen sulfide, and heterotrophically. S. islandicus can play host to a number of plasmids and viruses which may be useful in developing tools for genetic analysis. In addition, Sulfolobus islandicus isolates from different areas in Russia, Iceland, and the United States have been shown to be genetically distinct from each other making this organism useful for comparative analysis.

Subject: NC_008698:560529 Thermofilum pendens Hrk 5, complete genome

Lineage: Thermofilum pendens; Thermofilum; Thermofilaceae; Thermoproteales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Hyperthermophilic crenarchaeota. Thermofilum pendens is a hetrotrophic hyperthermophile that has been isolated from hot springs, mud holes, and other thermal environments. This organism gets energy from the respiration of sulfur, using complex organic compounds as electron donors.
