In our previous work, we had data-mined genomic databases and utilized available biochemical data on metabolic pathways of several reductive chemoautotrophic organisms that included Aquifex aeolicus, Hydrogenobacter ther-mophilus, Thiomicrospira denitrificans, and Chlorobium terpidium, enabling us to construct an almost complete chart of reductive autotrophic intermediary metabolism (Sriniva-san and Morowitz, 2009).
