AccessionGenProp0011
Namemethanogenesis
TypePHENOTYPIC
DescriptionYES NO Known methanogenic species so far all belong to the Archaea and are most closely related to the non-methanogenic genus Pyrococcus. Methanogenesis requires the presence of a number of distinctive cofactors. Methanogens tend to be anaerobic.
