Advancements in research techniques have led to more microbial discoveries. There are more than 5,000 known species of microbes. A microbial ecologist is studying hydro-thermal springs to better understand the earliest life on Earth.
Biofilms can form on almost any surface and act like a multicellular organism. Using new technology, researchers can grow and study biofilms and their life cycles.
Bioleaching uses microorganisms to extract metals from ore, which is frequently used in the mining industry. A researcher is testing ways to make the process more efficient. A similar process is used to clean wastewater from mining operations.
