Abstract

This review compares exemplary molecular and metabolic features of Archaea and Bacteria in terms of phylogenetic aspects. The results of the comparison confirm the coherence of the Archaea as postulated by Woese. Archaea and Bacteria share many basic features of their genetic machinery and their central metabolism. Similarities and distinctions allow projections regarding the nature of the common ancestor and the process of lineage diversification.
