Desulfurococcaceae

provided by wikipedia EN

In taxonomy, the Desulfurococcaceae are a family of the disc-shaped anaerobic microorganisms belonging to the order Desulfurococcales, in the domain Archaea.[1] Members of this family are distinguished from the other family (Pyrodictiaceae) in the order Desulfurococcales by having an optimal growth temperature below 100 °C, rather than above 100 °C, and by being more diverse.[2] Several genera of the family have been identified (see taxobox).

Phylogeny

The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN)[3] and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)[4] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 121 by 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project.[5] According to the study done by 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project Desulfurococcaceae is a paraphyletic and polyphyletic clade with member genera distributed among three clades throughout the base of the class Thermoprotei.
