  • Microorganisms
  • Interest in the microbial biodegradation of pollutants has intensified in recent years, and recent major methodological breakthroughs have enabled detailed genomic, metagenomic, proteomic, bioinformatic and other high-throughput analyses of environmentally relevant microorganisms , providing new insights into biodegradative pathways and the ability of organisms to adapt to changing environmental conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Microbial corrosion , also called bacterial corrosion , bio-corrosion , microbiologically influenced corrosion , or microbially induced corrosion ( MIC ), is corrosion caused or promoted by microorganisms , usually chemoautotrophs . (wikipedia.org)
  • Microbial genetics is the study of the mechanisms of heritable information in microorganisms, including bacteria, archaea, viruses and some protozoa and fungi. (nature.com)
  • Multispecies interactions in microbial food webs add further complexity to the population dynamics of microorganisms, including chaos. (uva.nl)
  • Yet, despite the astounding complexity of multispecies interactions in microbial communities, the ecosystem functions driven by microorganisms can show remarkable stability. (uva.nl)
  • Yet for many years our study of microbial flora was severely limited: the primary method of culturing microorganisms on media allowed us to study only between 0.1 and 10% of the total microbial flora in any given environment. (routledge.com)
  • genes
  • By some estimates there are twenty million microbial genes in your body: about a thousand times more than the 20,000 protein-coding genes in the human genome. (kottke.org)
  • mats
  • They live in the water-fuel interface of the water droplets, form dark black/brown/green, gel-like mats, and cause microbial corrosion to plastic and rubber parts of the aircraft fuel system by consuming them, and to the metal parts by the means of their acidic metabolic products. (wikipedia.org)
  • The site develops microbial mats, as well as common blooms of Purple sulfur bacteria, and sulfur oxidizing bacteria. (mbl.edu)
  • genomics
  • This workshop will provide an opportunity for LTER scientists to evaluate past research, learn about the current activities of colleagues who work at other sites, and explore problems and opportunities with respect to funding in microbial genomics. (google.com)
  • 1) Review microbial studies in ecological genomics including manipulation experiments along latitudinal gradients and across time scales. (google.com)
  • 2) Discuss the problems and opportunities inherent in coordinating and funding future cross-site collaborations in microbial ecological genomics, and we will discuss approaches to annotation and deposition molecular datasets and metadata. (google.com)

  • Consequently, it is critical to understand the genome variations that differentiate microbial strains. (nature.com)
  • biological
  • The Microbial Home is viewed as a cyclical biological machine where wastes like sewage, effluent, garbage, wastewater are filtered, processed and recycled to be used as inputs for the various home functions. (yankodesign.com)
  • Exploitation
  • Exploitation of microbial exopolysaccharides is relatively unexplored and research interest is constantly increasing toward isolation, characterization, and applications of novel exopolysaccharides as renewable resources. (springer.com)
  • converts
