Comments and References:

This group, originally identified by two environmental sample sequences from the Obsidian Pool hot spring in Yellowstone National Park (Barns et al. 1996), currently includes only environmental DNA sequences. For a brief report of a project to culture and characterize the Korarchaeota, see Burggraf et al. (1997).
