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_003364:359500 Pyrobaculum aerophilum str. IM2, complete genome

Lineage: Pyrobaculum aerophilum; Pyrobaculum; Thermoproteaceae; Thermoproteales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: This organism was isolated from a boiling marine water hole in Maronti Beach, Ischia, Italy. It grows optimally a 100ºC and pH 7.0. Growth can occur at temperatures between 74 and 104 ºC. Nitrate-reducing hyperthermophilic archeon. This organism is a facultatively anaerobic, nitrate-reducing hyperthermophilic archaeon. It is able to grow both aerobically and anaerobically by dissimilatory nitrate reduction.
