Special topic: Methanogenic archaea: list of the JCM strains and a
               recipe for the preparation of anaerobic culture media
               are released.
Methanogenic archaea are strict anaerobes that grow on limited
substrates, such as CO2 and H2, formate, methanol and/or acetate,
coupled with methane production.  Currently all cultivated species
belong to the phylum Methanobacteriota (formerly known as Euryarchaeota).
They are quite physiologically diverse, and widespread in natural and
anthropogenic anoxic habitats.  Methane is known as the most important
greenhouse gas after CO2, and a large part of the atmospheric methane
comes from the methanogenesis.  Meanwhile, methanogens are major
players in anaerobic digesters, working together with other anaerobic
microorganisms to break down organic waste and produce
methane-containing biogas.

Recently, JCM has released a list of the methanogenic archaeal strains
available from JCM and a recipe for the preparation of anaerobic
culture media to cultivate methanogens and other strictly anaerobic

List of strains (methanogens)
