Higher order taxa: Bacteria (Domain): Proteobacteria(Phylum): delta/epsilon subdivisions (Sub-phylum): Deltaproteobacteria (Class): Desulfovibrionales (Order): Desulfovibrionaceae (Family): Desulfovibrio (Genus): Desulfovibrio vulgaris (Species)

Description and Significance:

Thermus Thermophilus is a Gram-negative bacterium that was isolated in 1971. They spawn in thermal spring ranging from 50-82C. The biological machines from these organisms have a higher stability than other organisms due to the environment that they have to live in. Thermus Thermophilus contains two strains, HB8 and HB27; both were found in Japan’s thermal environment with optimum environment 68C and the pH 7.0. Thermophiles are anaerobes that can live in hot environment with low oxygen solubility due to the temperature with the exception of thermus, they are aerobic chemorganotroph.

Why is a login required to edit?

Editing pages has been restricted to users only. However, everyone is invited to read our research material and use it for educational purposes.

Leaving editing notes

Leaving notes on a page that has been edited will help others who edit the page after you understand what was meant or what information you were lacking. Leaving a note or comment is fairly easy, it should look like this <!-- place note here --> when leaving a note leave your user name and the date you edited that part of the page <!-- place note here DrewT, 6.1.06 -->.


To upload an image to MicrobeWiki for use in a page, find the toolbox at the lower left of the page and click on Upload File. Then follow the instructions to upload your image to microbewiki. Using an image in a page works the same way as in wikipedia, as described at Wikipedia:Extended image syntax


All pages on MicrobeWiki should based on either the Genus page or a class template page. At the top of each page, there should be an appropriate tagline from the Templates namespace. Include these taglines in a page by typing the name of the tag surrounded by two pairs of braces ({}).


General formating can be done by using the tool bar above the editing box, but more advanced features take special characters. To find out more, read Wikipedia's "How to edit a page".


Setting up tables is more dificult in a wiki environment, we suggest that you read Wikipedia's Help:Table for that information.
