Furiosus Pyrococcus furiosus is a type of extremophilic archaeon microbe, able to survive in extremely hot environments such as deep ocean vents. Due to its tolerance to high temperatures, P. furiosus has been well studied by scientists, especially in its applications in biotechnology. This organism is capable of producing industrially-important enzymes such as thermostable polymerases, which can be used in DNA amplification, as well as many other biotechnological processes. Furthermore, its genome has been extensively studied, and has revealed unique genetic and metabolic properties that can be explored for the development of other specialized molecules, such as thermostable biomaterials or antibiotics.
