About this book

Presents the microbiology of extremophiles living in the deep sea and describes the isolation, cultivation, and taxonomic identification of microorganisms retrieved from the Mariana Trench, the world's deepest point. Also explained are techniques for recovering pressure-loving bacteria, the barophiles (piezophiles), and for whole genome analysis of Bacillus halodurans C-125.


Part 1 Biodiversity in the Deep-Sea Environment: Isolation and Characterization of Microorganisms from Deep-Sea Mud. Molecular Analyses of the Sediment and Isolation of Extreme Barophiles from the Deepest Mariana Trench. Taxonomy and Biotransformation Activities of Deep-Sea Actinomycetes. Microbial Diversity in the Sediments Collected from Cold-seep Areas and from Different Depths of the Deep-Sea.- Part 2 Adaptation and Response of Extremophiles Toward Extreme Deep-Sea Conditions: Barophiles (Piezophiles). Thermophiles. Deep-Sea Psychrophiles. Organic Solvent-tolerant Microorganisms. Microbial Processes Associated with a Methane Seep Tubeworm.- Part 3 New Approaches and Future Scope for Deep-Sea Microbiology: Barophysiology (Piezophysiology).
