Taxonomy

Description
The MAG of this organism was recovered from metagenomic sequencing data of a deep-water hydrothermal sulfide deposit sample taken from the Lau Basin, in the Western Pacific. The binned genome of this organism is 1,470,116 bp in size, and consists of 112 contigs, with a G+C content of 54.8 %. CheckM-based quality assessment indicates a completeness of 94.0 % and a contamination estimate of 2.91 %. Phylogenomic reconstruction based on 122 conserved archaeal genes place this taxon in the family Wolframiraptoraceae. Only two putative tungsten-dependent AORs were predicted within the genome of this organism
