Background: Bacteria from the candidate phylum Acetothermia (OP1) are globally dispersed and occupy many diverse habitats (see figure to the right). However, little is known about their physiology and ecology. We previously observed that Acetothermia bacteria were the most abundant bacteria in the metagenome from an anaerobic digester.

Aim: To learn more about their abundance, morphology, and physiological and ecological function.
