With the financial protection of National Iranian Copper Industries Company, the composition of bacterial populations in Aliabad copper mine was investigated by electron microscopy and by analysis of DNA obtained from bacteria after ores laboratory cultures. This analysis consisted of the characterization of the spacer regions between the 16 and 23s genes in the bacterial rRNA genetic loci after PCR amplification. The size of the spacer region amplified from DNAs obtained from samples, were… Expand

Identification of Thiobacillus bacteria in agricultural soil in Iran using the 16S rRNA gene
TLDR
The study showed that Thiobacillus was not detected in all of the soils, and if sulfur fertilizer is given to the soil without this bacterium, it is necessary to use sulfur fertilizer with ThiOBacillus bacteria inoculation for better sulfur oxidation. Expand
Investigation of some heavy metals toxicity for indigenous Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans isolated from Sarcheshmeh copper mine
TLDR
The resistance of indigenous Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans to metals such Cd +2, Co +2 and Zn +2 was investigated in the process of bioleaching tailing and low grade ore and indicated it had less tolerance to Cd 2+ and Co 2+. Expand

Bacterial populations in samples of bioleached copper ore as revealed by analysis of DNA obtained before and after cultivation
TLDR
The composition of bacterial populations in copper bioleaching systems was investigated by analysis of DNA obtained either directly from ores or leaching solutions or after laboratory cultures, and the presence of a mixture of different bacteria was indicated. Expand
PCR-mediated detection of the chemolithotrophic bacterium Thiobacillus cuprinus using 23S rDNA- and 16S/23S intergenic spacer region-targeted oligonucleotide primers.
TLDR
An alternative method based on PCR-mediated detection using specific oligonucleotide primers that target variable regions of the 23S rRNA coding gene and of the 16S/23S intergenic spacer region is developed. Expand
The use of genetic probes to detect microorganisms in biomining operations
TLDR
DNA homology studies are described, using dot blot and Southern blot analysis of hybridizations of whole genomic DNA and cloned DNA sequences, to identify and enumerate several bioleaching microorganisms, demonstrating that it is possible to identify different species of microorganisms and, in one case, to discriminate between different strains of a single species.

Cultural and phylogenetic analysis of mixed microbial populations found in natural and commercial bioleaching environments
TLDR
Sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA genes of 33 representative strains revealed that all of the strains were closely related to strains which have been sequenced previously and confirmed the phylogenetic diversity of bacteria present in bioleaching environments. Expand
Microbial Ecology of an Extreme Acidic Environment, the Tinto River
TLDR
Given the physicochemical characteristics of the habitat and the physiological properties and relative concentrations of the different prokaryotes found in the river, a model for the Tinto ecosystem based on the iron cycle is suggested. Expand
