- ... Pseudomonas sp. strain Ant30-3, isolated from fuel-contaminated Antarctic soil, exhibited distinctive psychrotolerant attributes and the potential for degrading aromatic hydrocarbon compounds at cold temperatures. We report here the 6.14-Mb draft genome of Ant30-3, which will provide insights into the genomic basis for the psychrotolerant and biodegradative properties of this bacterium. ...

- ... Exposure to extremes of temperatures cause stresses which are sometimes lethal to living cells. Microorganisms in nature, however, are extremely diverse and some of them can live happily in the freezing cold of Antarctica. Among the cold adapted psychrotrophs and psychrophiles, the psychrotrophic bacteria are the predominant forms in the continental Antarctica. In spite of living in permanently co ...
