Abstract

We screened samples from high temperature biotopes for 16S rRNA genes of the novel archaeal phylum "Nanoarchaeota". Positive PCR amplifications were obtained from Yellowstone National Park, Uzon Caldera, and an abyssal vent system. These sequences form a cluster with the sequence of "Nanoarchaeum equitans", indicating a wide distribution of this phylum.
