Complete genome sequence of Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum deltaH: functional analysis and comparative genomics.
The complete 1,751,377-bp sequence of the genome of the thermophilic archaeon Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum deltaH has been determined by a whole-genome shotgun sequencing approach. A total ofExpand
Recovery and Identification of Viable Bacteria Immured in Glacial Ice
An extraction system has been constructed that melts ice from the interior of ice cores and collects the resulting water aseptically. Using this system, bacteria entrapped in ice cores from differentExpand
Molecular identification of Bacteria and Eukarya inhabiting an Antarctic cryoconite hole
Inhabitants of a cryoconite hole formed in the Canada Glacier in the McMurdo Dry Valley region of Antarctica have been isolated and identified by small subunit (16S/18S) rDNA amplification, cloning,Expand
Isolation of bacteria and 16S rDNAs from Lake Vostok accretion ice.
Lake Vostok, the largest subglacial lake in Antarctica, is separated from the surface by approximately 4 km of glacial ice. It has been isolated from direct surface input for at least 420 000 years,Expand
The genome of M. acetivorans reveals extensive metabolic and physiological diversity.
Methanogenesis, the biological production of methane, plays a pivotal role in the global carbon cycle and contributes significantly to global warming. The majority of methane in nature is derivedExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of 18 thermophilic Methanobacterium isolates supports the proposals to create a new genus, Methanothermobacter gen. nov., and to reclassify several isolates in three species,
Using a combination of 16S rRNA analysis and antigenic fingerprinting consisting of new and published data, the phylogenetic position of 18 thermophilic isolates currently classified asExpand

Archaea contain a variety of sequence‐independent DNA binding proteins consistent with the evolution of several different, sometimes overlapping and exchangeable solutions to the problem of genomeExpand
Archaeal nucleosomes.
Archaea contain histones that have primary sequences in common with eukaryal nucleosome core histones and a three-dimensional structure that is essentially only the histone fold. Here we report theExpand
Gene structure, organization, and expression in archaebacteria.
Major advances have recently been made in understanding the molecular biology of the archaebacteria. In this review, we compare the structure of protein and stable RNA-encoding genes cloned andExpand
Archaeal histones and the origin of the histone fold.
Histone sequences have been identified in many archaeal genomes and in environmental samples, and they constitute a family of proteins that are structural homologs of the eukaryotic core histones.Expand
