Archaeoglobus profundus (Burggraf et al. 1990) is a hyperthermophilic archaeon in the euryarchaeal class Archaeoglobi, which is currently represented by six validly named species and two taxonomically challenged 'Geoglobus' strains, all belonging to the same family Archaeoglobaceae. All members were isolated from marine hydrothermal habitats and are obligate anaerobes. Here we describe the features of the organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation. This is the second completed genome sequence of a member of the class Archaeoglobi. The 1,563,423 bp genome with its 1,858 protein-coding and 52 RNA genes is a part of the Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea project.

SIGS is currently in the process of transferring to a new publisher, BioMed Central. Although the Editor-in-Chief and the web address will remain the same, as of March 1, 2014 all Genome Reports submitted to SIGS will be published by BioMed Central and will incur an author processing charge (APC) of £865, payable upon acceptance. All other paper types will incur an APC of £1325, also payable upon acceptance. In submitting your paper to SIGS, you agree to pay this fee if and when your article is accepted for publication.


We would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of many members of the Genomic Standards Consortium, the broader genomic science community, and those who have indicated their willingness to serve as editors, reviewers and contributors.

SIGS was founded with grants from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies at Michigan State University, the Michigan State University Foundation, and the US Department of Energy Biological and Environmental Research DE-FG02-08ER64707.
