The autotrophic bacterium Aquifex aeolicus had been completely sequenced, was partially annotated, lay near the root of the ribosomal phylogenetic tree (Deckert et al.
Reviewing the list of autotrophic extremophiles whose genomes have been completely sequenced and are available in the public domain, we selected Aquifex aeolicus as the central candidate for developing a complete chart of anabolic intermediary metabolism.
This lineage that is placed phylogentically near the root includes Aquifex aeolicus, Thiomicrospira denitrificans, and Hydrogenobacter thermophilus, the main reference organisms that contributed to the construction of the complete anabolic chart of metabolism.
