Importance of organism and transcriptomesHydrogen gas is a principal energy source for microbes in many ecosystems and a recently isolated species of Tetraselmis (GSL018) from the Great Salt Lake is the most halophilic phototroph identified to date capable of robust hydrogen production. As no marine or halophilic species of algae with robust hydrogenase/fermentative activity has been characterized to date, and relatively little information is available regarding how salt water necessitates unique metabolic demands, we propose to investigate the fermentative metabolisms of GSL018s using transcriptomics.
