Subseafloor bacteria survive by over-activating DNA-repair and antibiotic target genes

6/13/2014
The subseafloor is home to over 1/3 of the bacteria on the planet, but up until recently it was unclear if this huge microbial biosphere was alive and dividing. Now the same group that demonstrated this activity has shown that bacteria from the hostile sea-floor environment have adapted by over-activating stress response and DNA-repair mechanisms, to cope with the harsh conditions. Subseafl... [Comments]
