Diversity of bacteria and archaea from two shallow marine hydrothermal vents from Vulcano Island
Sediment and water samples taken from two shallow marine hydrothermal vents with temperatures of 100 °C at Vulcano Island, Italy showed a high abundance of hyperthermophilic archaea and a comparable diverse archaeal community composition in both samples, and the microbial diversity of the enrichment cultures changed significantly.

The data indicate that an ancestor of T. brockianus obtained the ability to use xylose as alternative carbon source by horizontal gene transfer and a unique genomic region on megaplasmid pTB1 was identified encoding key enzymes for xylan depolymerization andxylose metabolism.
Enrichment of anaerobic heterotrophic thermophiles from four Azorean hot springs revealed different community composition and genera abundances using recalcitrant substrates
DGGE analysis combined with a metagenomic approach revealed that heterotrophic thermophilic bacteria are highly abundant in the hydrothermal springs and significant differences in community composition depending on the substrate were observed.
