Carbon fixation genes in biomining microorganisms
MetadataShow full item record
Background and aims: Studying metabolic pathways will help provide a better understanding of the role of different microorganisms within biomining environments. The majority of microorganisms involved in biomining are autotrophs which rely on atmospheric carbon fixation for growth. The aim of this study is to investigate genes involved with carbon fixation in a range of biomining microorganisms.

Bioleaching in brackish waters—effect of chloride ions on the acidophile population and proteomes of model speciesZammit, Carla; Mangold, S.; rao Jonna, V.; Mutch, Lesley; Watling, Helen; Dopson, M.; Watkin, Elizabeth (2012)High concentrations of chloride ions inhibit the growth of acidophilic microorganisms used in biomining, a problem particularly relevant to Western Australian and Chilean biomining operations. Despite this, little is known ...
