Abstract
AbstractTrace metals have been an important ingredient for life throughout Earth’s history. Here, we describe the genome-guided cultivation of a member of the elusive archaeal lineage Caldarchaeales (syn. Aigarchaeota), Wolframiiraptor gerlachensis, and its growth dependence on tungsten. A metagenome-assembled genome (MAG) of W. gerlachensis encodes putative tungsten membrane transport systems, as well as pathways for anaerobic oxidation of sugars probably mediated by tungsten-dependent ferredox

Abstract
An aerobic, saccharolytic, obligately thermophilic, motile, non-spore-forming bacterium, strain T49T, was isolated from geothermally heated soil at Hell’s Gate, Tikitere, New Zealand. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, T49T is the first representative of a new class in the newly described phylum Armatimonadetes, formerly known as candidate division OP10. Cells of strain T49T stained Gram-negative and were catalase-positive and oxidase-negative. Cells possessed a highly corrugated
