Archaea form one of the three primary groups of extant life and are commonly associated with the extreme environments which many of their members inhabit. Currently, the Archaea are classified into two kingdoms, Crenarchaeota and Euryarchaeota, based on phylogenetic analysis of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequences. Molecular techniques allowing the retrieval and analysis of rRNA sequences from diverse environments are increasing our knowledge of archaeal diversity. This report describes the presence… Expand
