SummaryDNAs from 16 species of archaebacteria including 6 novel isolates were hybridized with 16S rRNAs from 7 species representing different orders or groups of the urkingdom of archaebacteria.The yields, normalized for the number of genes perµg of DNA, and the temperature stabilities of all hybrids were determined and related to each other.A taxonomic tree constructed from such fractional stability data reveals the same major divisions as that derived from comparative cataloging of 16S rRNA… 
Hybridization homology: A new parameter for the analysis of phylogenetic relations, demonstrated with the urkingdom of the archaebacteria
TLDR
A formula was derived to correct the hybridization yields for the different genome lengths and numbers of rRNA operons per genome, which made it possible to determine hybridization homologies, as functions of velocity constants, which could then be used in a similar way as sequence homologies.
Organization of the genes for ribosomal RNA in archaebacteria
TLDR
The arrangement of the ribosomal RNA genes of eight archaebacteria is determined by Southern hybridization of purified 32P-labeled 5S, 16S and 23S rRNA to chromosomal DNA fragmented with six restriction endonucleases recognizing different hexanucleotide sequences.
Nucleic Acid Studies on Halophilic Archaebacteria
Archaebacteria exhibit considerable phylogenetic diversity despite the relatively restricted range of archaebacterial phenotypes. The methanogens comprise three orders (Balch et a/., 1979; Wildgruber

Thermoacidophilic Microorganisms and their Novel Biocatalysts
TLDR
The sequencing of five complete genomes of thermoacidophilic organisms has allowed more detailed investigation regarding the evolution of organisms sharing extreme growth conditions of a unique niche, especially with respect to horizontal gene transfer.
DNA-dependent RNA polymerase subunit B as a tool for phylogenetic reconstructions: Branching topology of the archaeal domain
TLDR
The branching topology of the archaeal (archaebacterial) domain was inferred from sequence comparisons of the largest subunit (B) of DNA-dependent RNA polymerases (RNAP) and demonstrates RNAP to be a suitable phylogenetic marker molecule.
Major players on the microbial stage: why archaea are important.
TLDR
Evidence is outlined by an increasingly large and productive group of scientists that demonstrates not only that the Archaea contribute significantly to global nutrient cycling, but also that they compete successfully in 'mainstream' environments.
Complete genome sequence of Desulfurococcus mucosus type strain (O7/1T)
TLDR
The 1,314,639 bp long genome with its 1,371 protein-coding and 50 RNA genes is a part of the GenomicEncyclopedia ofBacteria andArchaea project.
Glycogen in thermoacidophilic archaebacteria of the genera Sulfolobus, Thermoproteus, Desulfurococcus and Thermococcus

Thermoproteales—a third order of thermoacidophilic archaebacteria
TLDR
It is shown that Thermoproteus tenax, a novel anaerobic, sulphur-respiring, multiform thermoacidophilic archaebacterium isolated from solfataric springs of Iceland, represents a third order of the thermo Acidophilic branch ofarchaebacteria and suggests a specific relationship between thermo acidophilic Archaeb bacteria and primitive eukaryotes such as yeast.
The Sulfolobus-“Caldariella” group: Taxonomy on the basis of the structure of DNA-dependent RNA polymerases
The similarity of the morphology and of DNA composition, the homology of the component patterns of DNA-dependent RNA polymerases and their immunochemical crossreactivity support the conclusion that
Sulfolobus: A new genus of sulfur-oxidizing bacteria living at low pH and high temperature
TLDR
Sulfolobus apparently has no close relationship with any previously described bacteria, either heterotrophic or autrotrophic, and may be an important geochemical agent in the production of sulfuric acid from sulfur in high temperature hydrothermal systems.
Comparative Cataloging of 16S Ribosomal Ribonucleic Acid: Molecular Approach to Procaryotic Systematics
TLDR
A molecular approach to systematics is shown to give results in essential agreement with traditional techniques for this group of organisms, and appears well suited for higher order classification, an area which has been difficult to approach withTraditional techniques.
The phylogeny of prokaryotes.
TLDR
A basic evolutionary dichotomy is suggested by the diversion of the archaebacteria and the eubacteria and possible inter-relationships of the former and eukaryotic organisms are discussed.
Mapping of transcription units in the bacteriophage T4 tRNA gene cluster.
TLDR
Two alternative schemes for transcriptional organization of the T4 tRNA genes are suggested, one of which envisage a major transcription unit defined by a promoter 1000 base-pairs upstream, and a terminator 300 base-Pairs downstream from the t RNA genes, and the other proposes a weak terminator in the spacer region.
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.
Preparation and preliminary characterization of purified ovalbumin messenger RNA from the hen oviduct.
TLDR
The size of the ovalbumin mRNA is considerably greater than that required to code for a protein of 387 amino acids, which should now permit a more thorough analysis of its physical and chemical properties.
Improvements of the membrane filter method for DNA:rRNA hybridization
TLDR
Improvements of DNA are described and recommend the following improvements of DNA: single-stranded DNA, fixed on membrane filters, and stored in vacuo at 4C, can be used reliably for hybridization for up to 20 months, and rRNA membrane filter hybridization methods can be stored for 20 months without changing the hybridization results.

TLDR
The present study arose from the observation that a more intense colour was sometimes produced if, instead of being heated at 1000 for 10 min., the reaction mixture was allowed to stand overnight at room temperature.
