  1. 1. Antimicrobial potential of Geobacillus sp. ZGt-1 isolated from Zara hot spring in Jordan : Piecing the puzzle of the antagonistic activity of a novel bacterial strain

    Author : Rawana Alkhalili; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thermophiles; Geobacillus; antimicrobial potential; antimicrobial peptides; bacteriocins; lanthipeptides; toxin-antitoxin; genome sequence;

    Abstract : The problem of antibiotic resistance is rising continuously, creating a warning signal that calls for finding alternatives. Not only that, but there is also a rising demand for natural food preservatives. The pharmaceutical and food industry sectors are working on fulfilling these needs. This thesis is exploring possible solutions to these issues. READ MORE

  2. 2. Diversity of thermostable DNA enzymes from Icelandic hot springs

    Author : Sigridur Hjorleifsdottir; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermophiles; microbial diversity; SSU rRNA; Thermus; hot springs; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Biochemistry; enzymologi; Proteiner; enzymology; metabolism; Proteins; DNA enzymes; Biokemi;

    Abstract : The diversities of bacteria as well as thermostable DNA enzymes in Icelandic hot springs were studied using different techniques. First of all the bacterial diversity of different microbial mats as well as sediment samples was described by using both molecular methods and cultivation methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Phylogenetic characterization of microbial mats and isolation of Thermus spp. and sulfur-oxidizing bacteria from Icelandic hot springs

    Author : Sigurlaug Skirnisdottir; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biochemical technology; hot springs; thermophiles; microbial diversity; SSU rRNA; sulfur-oxidizers; Thermus; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Metabolism; Biokemisk teknik;

    Abstract : Until recently, the only way to describe microbial communities was by cultivation. This is a major obstacle because typically only a small fraction of the microbes can be cultivated by standard techniques. However, the use of rRNA and molecular phylogenetic techniques has allowed us to bypass this limitation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bench-Scale Production of Heterologous Proteins from Extremophiles- Escherichia coli and Pichia pastoris based expression systems

    Author : Santosh Ramchuran; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Glycoside hydrolase; Heterologous protein; High cell density cultivation Expression systems; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; Fed-batch;

    Abstract : Over the past few years considerable research attention has been assigned to extremophiles as sources of extremozymes due to their applicability in industrial processes, and the development of eco-friendly technologies. The establishment of efficient production strategies for heterologous proteins is an empirical process requiring broad background knowledge on available expression systems together with their major advantages and shortcomings.

  5. 5. Hydrogen Production by Caldicellulosiruptor species: The Organism and the Metabolism

    Author : Ahmad Zeidan; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Extreme thermophile; Caldicellulosiruptor; Biohydrogen; Co-culture; Coexistence; Hydrogen tolerance; Genome-scale reconstruction; In silico; Flux balance analysis;

    Abstract : Hydrogen holds a great promise as an efficient and clean future energy carrier due to its high energy density and lack of pollutant generation. Anaerobic degradation of organic substrates by heterotrophic microorganisms enables the production of hydrogen from a wide spectrum of agricultural feedstock and waste products. READ MORE
