Methanomicrobia

Methanomicrobia

In the taxonomy of microorganisms, the Methanomicrobia are a class (biology) of the Euryarchaeota.[1]

Phylogeny

The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN)[2] and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)[3] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 106 by 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project.[4]
