- The methane-metabolizing organisms are categorized within a distinct group of microorganisms. This group of micro-organisms are called Euryarchaeota.
- The newly-discovered archaea belong to this group called the Bathyarchaeota.
- In Greek 'bathys' means deep. It is located in deep branching with Thaumarchaeota and Aigarchaeaota. It has been discovered in the month of October last year. Thanks.
