Abstract:

Harvard's paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould said in a lecture on evolution at Woods Hole that the 3.5-billion-year-old microorganisms will also be the ultimate survivors on this planet. For the author, the detour via deep-sea studies was necessary to discover novel types of symbioses between chemosynthetic bacteria and marine invertebrates. The author and his coworkers demonstrated that the produced biomass could be used for feeding mussels in aquaculture. Also, this well-defined carbohydratious material may be a useful base material for fermentations to alcohols as synthetic fuels or for other industrial applications. Marine microbiology is a healthy and always exciting mix of interdisciplinary activities—both classical and modern microbiological approaches.
