Ferroplasma is a genus of the Archaea, one of the three branches of the tree of life, and belongs to the order Thermoplasmatales (Euryarchaeota), which contains the most acidophilic microbes yet known. Ferroplasma species live in acid mine drainage, acidic pools and environments containing sulphidic ores such as pyrite and characterized by pH values of 0–2 and high concentrations of ferrous iron and other heavy metals. F. acidiphilum strain YT is a chemoautotroph that grows optimally at pH 1.7… CONTINUE READING
