Method Autotrophic growth under optimal conditions (90°C pH 6.0 1% S° H2/CO2 ratio, 80%/20% [vol/vol] at 250 kPa) occurred at a generation time of 1 h, corresponding to a specific growth rate (µ) of 0.011 min^-1. The cells that were studied grew with a generation time of approximately 2 h.
Comments For minimum generation time of 0.83 hours see BNID 105462 Table - link (a pdf file, search 'Ignicoccus' and see ref 77 under table).
