Extreme Environment Microecology

Extreme Environment Microecology

There are many extreme environments in nature, such as glaciers, volcanic craters, deep seas, etc. These places are not suitable for the survival of humans and other animals and plants, but there are a large number of microbes. These microbes are extremophiles. The extremophiles mainly include thermophilic bacteria, psychrotrophic bacteria, halophilic bacteria, acidophilic bacteria, and extreme anaerobes, etc.

In recent years, scientists have successively discovered new life forms in extreme environments. Some unique genetic types of extremophiles thrive in these "life forbidden zones". Because the special living environment creates the complexity of cells and the differences in their functions, the value of scientific research and the application prospects of metabolites as products are immeasurable, such as the application of low-temperature enzymes, drug storage and transportation.

Technical Process

  • The process of extremophile high-throughput sequencing analysis.

Sample Type and Detection Type

  • The sample types are 3-5g fresh samples.
  • The requirements of DNA sample: total DNA ≥ 500ng, DNA concentration ≥ 10ng/μL, OD260/280 = 1.8 - 2.0.
  • The main detection types are bacteria, fungi and archaebacteria, etc.

What Can We Offer?

Creative Biogene uses molecular biology combined with high-throughput sequencing methods to obtain information about most of the microbes in the sample. Through statistical and bioinformatics analysis, a large amount of data is processed and analyzed to find the diversity of the microbial community structure in the sample, then to help you complete scientific research.

The specific service content includes the following aspects, microbial isolation & cultivation, microbial identification, microbial sequencing, microbial proteomics, microbial metabonomics, microbial genome editing and bioinformatics analysis.
