Using media with low water activity, a large numbers of aureobasidium-like black yeasts were isolated from glacial and subglacial ice of three polythermal glaciers from the coastal Arctic environment of Kongsfjorden (Svalbard, Spitsbergen), as well as from adjacent sea water, sea ice and glacial meltwaters. To characterise the genetic variability of(More)
During investigations of mycobiota in the coastal Arctic polythermal glaciers, different species of the ubiquitous genus Penicillium were isolated from the extreme subglacial environment. A group of Penicillium strains was obtained that did not belong to any known Penicillium species. This species was isolated in high numbers from the Kongsvegen subglacial(More)
Today, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a feared cause of nosocomial infections worldwide. These organisms can gain increased resistance to antimicrobial agents through biofilm formation, which appears to be a bacterial survival strategy. MRSA isolates obtained from patients were cultured in nutrient-limited medium supplemented with(More)
