Cold adaptation in planktonic and sea-ice bacteriaEntry ID: ASAC_1126
Abstract: Preliminary Metadata record for data expected from ASAC Project 1126
See the link below for public details on this project.
---- Public Summary from Project ----
Previous work on anti-freeze proteins (AFPs) in bacteria isolated from saline lakes in the Vestfold Hills, has shown that only around 10% of isolates possessed AFP activity. This suggests that the majority of bacteria may be using other ... mechanisms to avoid freezing or possibly are non-functional at sub-zero temperatures. We propose building on our previous work to ascertain if AFP occurrence is characteristic of particular taxonomic groups, or whether its evolution is random among different species.
The fields in this dataset are:
Height of ice core sample from ice/water interface
Thickness of Ice core sample
DOC - Dissolved Organic Carbon
COV of DOC - Coefficient of Variance
