ThermusQ is a website ( that aims to gather all the molecular information on Thermus thermophilus and to provide a platform to easily access the whole view of the bacterium. ThermusQ comprises the genome sequences of 22 strains from T. thermophilus and T. oshimai strains, plus the sequences of known Thermus phages. ThermusQ also contains information and map diagrams of pathways unique to Thermus strains. The website provides tools to retrieve sequence data in different ways. By gathering the whole data of T. thermophilus strains, the strainspecific characteristics was found. This bird's-eye view of the whole data will lead the research community to identify missing important data and the integration will provide a platform to conduct future biochemical simulations of the bacterium.
