Imagine having a metabolism 1 million times slower than another person. This is the reality for bacteria living in sediments at the bottom of deep oceans and rivers. These microbes only divide every 10 to 10,000 years. Compare that to lab-grown microbes thriving in an environment enriched with all the nutrients required for growth, such … Continue reading “Can Eating Too Little Actually Damage Your Metabolism? Find Out.”
For years, scientists have thought that microorganisms that use chlorophyll capture the majority of solar energy in the ocean. In study published this week (August 7) in Science Advances, researchers show that bacteria with proteorhodopsins—proteins that capture light with a pigment called retinal—play a major role in converting light to energy, especially in parts of … Continue reading “Does Chlorophyll Play a Major Role in Marine? Find Out!”
The moons, planets and asteroids of our solar system are full of useful stuff: water to make hydrogen fuel, metals and minerals for construction, even rocks that can be broken down into soil-like material for farming and terraforming. “Virtually all the raw materials you need to build anything in space is already there,” said Chris … Continue reading “SPACE STATIONS INVENT A BLAST OFF FOR ASTEROID MINING”
The environment that we live in has an abundance of powers that the scientists have researched and yet to discover. Even, the smallest microbes in the environment pose such powers; scientists are now in a conquest to tap their ability to make electricity. The research this time is different from the previous ones as it … Continue reading “This bionic mushroom makes electricity”
Marine microbiology is quickly emerging as one of the most exciting and fast-moving areas of modern science.
BACTERIA play an important role in overall health of the individual
Tuberculosis is a serious infection that causes harm to the lungs. People with poor immune system are more liable to get tuberculosis. With proper treatment at the right time, tuberculosis can be treated.
