Extremophiles features original research articles, reviews, and method papers on the biology, molecular biology, structure, function, and applications of microbial life at the edges of survivability. Conditions covered include high or low temperature, pressure, acidity, alkalinity, salinity, or desiccation; or in the presence of organic solvents, heavy metals, normally toxic substances, or radiation.

The coverage incorporates aspects of multiple disciplines, including molecular biology, biodiversity, genetics, genomics, metagenomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, survival strategies, macromolecular structure, biotechnology, fermentation technology, ultrastructure, biotransformation, metabolism, enzymology, biomembranes, bioenergetics, biophysics, physiology, cell biology, symbiosis, ecology, bioremediation, methodologies, evolution, phylogeny, taxonomy, astrobiology, and others.

Color figures are free in print and online.

  • Presents research and reviews on the biology, structure, function, and applications of life in inhospitable environments
