Hypersaline systems near salt saturation levels represent an extreme environment, in which organisms grow and survive near the limits of life. One of the abundant members of the microbial communities in walsbyi. Utilizing a short-read metagenome from Lake Tyrrell, a hypersaline ecosystem in hypersaline systems is the square archaeon, Haloquadratum Victoria, Australia, we performed a comparative genomic analysis of H. walsbyi to better understand the extent of variation between strains/subspecies.
