Genome-Wide Search for Genes Required for Bifidobacterial Growth under Iron-Limitation

Abstract

Bacteria evolved over millennia in the presence of the vital micronutrient iron. Iron is involved in numerous processes within the cell and is essential for nearly all living organisms. The importance of iron to the survival of bacteria is obvious from the large variety of mechanisms by which iron may be acquired from the environment. Random mutagenesis and… (More)
