Title

Molecular phylogeny of uncultivated Crenarchaeota in Great Basin hot springs of moderately elevated temperature

Document Type

Article

Abstract

Uncultivated Crenarchaeota are distributed widely in low temperature (70◦C) or low temperature natural habitats, and demonstrates that thermophiles inhabiting moderate temperature portions of Great Basin hot springs are phylogenetically distinct from both cultivated hyperthermophilic Crenarchaeota and sympatric soil Crenarchaeota.
