Towards a natural system of organisms: proposal for the domains Archaea, Bacteria, and Eucarya.
TLDR
It is proposed that a formal system of organisms be established in which above the level of kingdom there exists a new taxon called a "domain." Life on this planet would be seen as comprising three domains, the Bacteria, the Archaea, and the Eucarya, each containing two or more kingdoms. Expand
Methanogens: reevaluation of a unique biological group.
TLDR
The present study focuses on the development and outline of a new treatment based on 16-year-old ribonucleic acid, as well as evidence in support of the new taxonomic treatment. Expand

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based upon ribosomal RNA sequence characterization reveals that living systems represent one of three aboriginal lines of descent: the eubacteria, comprising all typical bacteria, the archaebacteria, and the urkaryotes, now represented in the cytoplasmic component of eukaryotic cells.

A new version of the RDP (Ribosomal Database Project)
TLDR
The Ribosomal Database Project (RDP-II), previously described by Maidak et al. (1997), is now hosted by the Center for Microbial Ecology at Michigan State University and will provide more rapid updating of data, better data accuracy and increased user access. Expand

  • 9 June 1998
TLDR
The universal phylogenetic tree is not an organismal tree at its base but gradually becomes one as its peripheral branchings emerge as the universal ancestor of all extant life is presented. Expand
