Supplementary Material

The methods of sequencing employed and the data basis used in the sequence comparisons are described. A list of methanogen specific genes is given (supplementary Table 1). It is described how the CDS not in common were traced back to putative gene splitting events, gene deletion events, gene duplication events and lateral gene transfer events. For Methanothermobacter marburgensis, CDS not in common are listed in supplementary Table 2 and those for M. thermoautotrophicus in supplementary Table 3.
