Genetic improvement of acidophilic bacteria for biohydrometallurgical applications

Genetic improvement of acidophilic bacteria for biohydrometallurgical applications

Geomicrobiology Journal 9(4): 249-255

Recent success in introducing foreign genetic information into Acidiphilium and Thiobacillus ferrooxidans have opened the possibility of the improvement of the bioleaching properties of acidophilic bacteria through genetic means. The use of electroporation to transform acidophilic bacteria, while effective for diverse genera of bacteria, is potentially limited by observed str. dependence within a given species.
