A few thermophilic bacteria were isolated from a hot spring located in Papandayan Crater, Garut. One of the organisms showed a well growth at temperature of up to 80 o C. Chromosomal DNA from the organism was isolated and used to amplify 16S rRNA gene fragment. The gene was amplified by a set of universal primers (27F and 1492R) resulting in a 1.5 kb DNA fragment. The gene was cloned and sequenced. The phylogenetic tree, homological analysis, and detailed comparison of the sequences showed that
