Insights into the evolution of Archaea and eukaryotic protein modifier systems revealed by the genome of a novel archaeal group
The domain Archaea has historically been divided into two phyla, the Crenarchaeota and Euryarchaeota. Although regarded as members of the Crenarchaeota based on small subunit rRNA phylogeny,Expand
