Abstract

There have been recent research developments with Antarctic prokaryotes in the areas of isolations of novel bacteria, culture collections, bioactivity screening, taxonomy, production of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), cold-adapted enzymes and bioremediation. Research to date confirms the novelty of bacteria isolated from this extreme environment. Opportunities now exist to exploit these and other findings to develop possible new biotechnological products from Antarctic microorganisms.
