Query: NC_012726:1751713 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_000909:963984 Methanocaldococcus jannaschii DSM 2661, complete genome

Lineage: Methanocaldococcus jannaschii; Methanocaldococcus; Methanocaldococcaceae; Methanococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Methane-producing thermophilic archeon. Isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent in the east Pacific Rise in 1982. This organism is an obligately anaerobic methane-producing archeon and was the first representative of the archaeal domain to be completely sequenced. The cells require a pH of 5.2-7 with 1.0-5.0% NaCl, optimal conditions are pH 6.0 and 3% NaCl. Fixes carbon dioxide to methane as its primary energy-producing biochemical pathway.
