Extreme environments

08 July 2019 14:30 - 15:30

Extreme environments include habitats with a diverse microbial population adapted to cope with extremes of environmental parameters such as temperature, pH, salinity, etc. In this workshop we will focus on different aspects of extremophilic microorganisms (archaea, bacteria, eukaryotes), from metagenomics- to genomic-based studies on hypersaline habitats, hot springs, deep-sea sediments, mud volcanoes, soil hot deserts, soils in Antarctica or Arctic tundra. Other aspects such as the genomic determinants of respiratory metabolism in extremophiles or living at low pH will be presented and discussed.

Chair: Antonio Ventosa, University of Sevilla, Spain
