David,

The 16S rRNA has been sequenced from Thermotoga which places this
organism near the base of the eubacteria.  A few other genes have
been sequenced but none as phylogenetically useful as rRNA.  Check
out any publication by Woese or cronies for a tree which shows
where Thermotoga branches.

Cheers,  Dave
