Microbes are present everywhere on this planet, including in hostile environmental and industrial areas. Metagenomics analyses allow researchers to discover novel organisms thriving in extreme locations; however, hostile environmental conditions make it difficult to extract whole microbial genomes for accurate results.

In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Samantha Joye and Scott Tighe will discuss ways to overcome technical challenges in nucleic acid and metabolite extraction and investigate how microbes interact with the environment.

Topics to be covered

  • New metagenomics pipelines for extreme microbes
  • Microbial metabolism and adaptation to extreme environments
