Natural Resources in Deep Sea Vents

Monday, February 23, 2009

Huge raised opening exist in the ocean floor deep under the ocean where no sunlight reaches. They are known as deep sea vents.

Researchers already are studying many kinds of bacteria found near the vents. Some of the bacteria can survive in very hot temperatures well above the boiling point. Such extremely small organisims are known as hyperthermophiles.

Scientists have discovered these organisms contain powerful enzymes. For example, one such enzyme permits scientists to rapidly make million of copies of genetic material from fingerprints. The method had been helpful in solving crimes.
