 Thermus aquaticus is a thermophilic bacterium that is isolated from thermal springs in Yellowstone National Park, CaliforniaCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name cannot be a simple integer. Use a descriptive title. Isolates of T. aquaticus are gram-negative nonsporulating nonmotile rods which frequently form long filaments at supraoptimal temperaturesCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name cannot be a simple integer. Use a descriptive title.This bacterium has revolutionised the PCR technique as from it, the enzyme Taq polymerase has been harvested.
