Special Issue in Microorganisms: Yeasts Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Thermophiles are microorganisms that live in hot environments, with high optimal growth temperatures (above 50ºC). Most of them belong to the Bacteria and Archaea domains. Thermophiles express a wide variety of heat-resistant enzymes (thermozymes) with great biotechnological and industrial potential. During the last years, studies have been conducted about elucidation of mechanisms of resistance to high temperatures, description of new species and microbial diversity living in hot environments, and also screenings for novel thermozymes with unique properties have been performed. Thermophiles are difficult to culture under usual laboratory conditions, and therefore culture-independent techniques, such us metagenomics, are giving an important impulse to these studies. There is still an immense field to be explored in this regard.
