Ice Nucleation by Marine Psychrophiles
Entry ID: NSF-ANT08-01392

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The primary objective of this research is to investigate polar marine psychrophilic bacteria for their potential to nucleate ice using a combination of microbiological, molecular biological and atmospheric science approaches in the laboratory. Very little is known about how psychrophiles interact and cope with ice or their adaptations to conditions of extreme cold and salinity. This work will ... View entire text
