  • 30 January 1990
Psychrophilic and psychrotrophic microorganisms are important in global ecology as a large proportion of our planet is cold (below 5 degrees C); they are responsible for the spoilage of chilled foodExpand

Mechanisms of thermal adaptation in bacteria: blueprints for survival
Abstract Bacteria use a variety of mechanisms to alter the lipid composition of their membranes, and hence membrane fluidity, in response to changes in growth temperature. These modifications are anExpand

Photonic quantum technologies
We have developed an integrated waveguide approach to photonic quantum circuits for high performance, miniaturization and scalability. We have begun to address the challenges of scaling up quantumExpand

  • 1 April 2000
Abstract Despite the fact that a much greater proportion of the earth environment is cold rather than hot, much less is known about psychrophilic, cold-adapted microorganisms compared withExpand

  • 1998
Bacteria which live in cold conditions are known as psychrophiles. Since so much of our planet is generally cold, i.e. below 5 degrees C, it is not surprising that they are very common amongst a wideExpand

  • 1 February 1989
Halotolerant and halophilic microorganisms can grow in (hyper)saline environments, but only halophiles specifically require salt. Genotypic and phenotypic adaptations are displayed by halophiles; theExpand
