Magnificent Microbes is an innovative outreach event designed to educate, inspire and entertain large numbers of school children and family groups about microbes, the roles that they play in shaping our environment, and how they influence the food, health, and green energy sectors of our economy. Magnetic bacteria typically live far below the surface, where oxygen is scarce. (They do not grow well where oxygen is plentiful.) What makes them fascinating is that they naturally grow strings of microscopic magnetic particles called Magnetosomes. When placed in a magnetic field, the bacteria align like tiny swimming compass needles, a phenomenon call Magnetotaxis.

The bacteria in micro biomes are closely tied to their host’s health. They regulate our immune system and metabolism  they offer protection against pathogenic microbes, and produce essential vitamins. Modern genomics and bioinformatics can help to quickly control food-borne contamination, which is key to ensuring food safety. After the detection and identification of pathogenic microbes, typing via whole genome analysis is the fastest, most accurate path to tracking a pathogen contamination back to the source. In addition, whole genome analysis can reveal the presence of genes involved in antimicrobial resistance

Microbial technology, the research team aims to increase hydrocarbon recovery factor in extraction wells. The   Technology of Hydrocarbons Recovery using Microbes uses microorganisms found in oil samples that already produce metabolites like carbon dioxide, solvents and acids to increase the recovery factor. The Technology of Hydrocarbons Recovery using Microbes (IMP-RHVM) uses microorganisms found in oil samples that already produce metabolites like carbon dioxide, solvents and acids to increase the recovery factor. Where hydrocarbon extraction is performed with primary and secondary technologies (corresponding to the natural flow and water injection), about 30 percent oil is obtained; meaning that 70 percent remains in the reservoir, hence the importance of such methods. Cultivating microorganisms in the laboratory of Biotechnology and Hydrocarbons Recovery at the IMP from samples obtained from wells.

The application of directed selection techniques and genetic engineering methods for manipulation of antibiotic-producing microorganisms is generating a new era in industrial microbiology. Modern methods, based on advances in the knowledge of the biosynthetic pathways and regulatory mechanisms involved in the induction and repression of genes involved in antibiotic synthesis, provide a means of increasing antibiotic activity. Hence, recombinant DNA and protoplast fusion methods are used to alter the genetics of antibiotic producers in a semi random fashion for the development of novel hybrid antibiotics.

Microbial genetics is a subject area within microbiology and genetic engineering. It studies the genetics of very small (micro) organisms; bacteria, archaea, viruses and some protozoa and fungi. This involves the study of the genotype of microbial species and also the expression system in the form of phenotypes. Microbes are ideally suited for biochemical and genetics studies and have made huge contributions to these fields of science such as the demonstration that DNA is the genetic material, that the gene has a simple linear structure that the genetic code is a triplet code, and that gene expression is regulated by specific genetic processes. Jacques Monod and François Jacob used Escherichia coli, a type of bacteria, in order to develop the operon model of gene expression, which lay down the basis of gene expression and regulation.

There is a growing need to develop clean, nontoxic and environmentally friendly ("green chemistry") procedures for synthesis and assembly of nanoparticles. The use of biological organisms in this area is rapidly gaining importance due to its growing success and ease of formation of nanoparticles. Presently, the potential of bio-organisms ranges from simple prokaryotic bacterial cells to eukaryotic fungus and even live plants. In this article we have reviewed some of these biological systems, which have revolutionized the art of nano-material synthesis

Microalgae or microphytes are microscopic algae, typically found in freshwater and marine systems living in both the water column and sediment. They are unicellular species which exist individually, or in chains or groups. Depending on the species, their sizes can range from a few micrometers (µm) to a few hundred micrometers. Unlike higher plants, microalgae do not have roots, stems, or leaves. They are specially adapted to an environment dominated by viscous forces. Microalgae, capable of performing photosynthesis, are important for life on earth; they produce approximately half of the atmospheric oxygen and use simultaneously the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide to grow photo auto trophically. Microalgae, together with bacteria, form the base of the food web and provide energy for all the trophic levels above them. Microalgae biomass is often measured with chlorophyll a concentrations and can provide a useful index of potential production.

Microbial intelligence (popularly known as bacterial intelligence) is the intelligence shown by microorganisms. The concept encompasses complex adaptive behavior shown by single cells, and altruistic or cooperative behavior in populations of like or unlike cells mediated by chemical signaling that induces physiological or behavioral changes in cells and influences colony structures. Complex cells, like protozoa or algae, show remarkable abilities to organize themselves in changing circumstances. Shell-building by amoebae reveals complex discrimination and manipulative skills that are ordinarily thought to occur only in multicellular organisms. Even bacteria, which show primitive behavior as isolated cells, can display more sophisticated behavior as a population. These behaviors occur in single species populations, or mixed species populations. Examples are colonies of myxo bacteria, quorum sensing, and biofilms.

Agricultural biotechnology is a collection of scientific techniques used to improve plants, animals and microorganisms. Based on an understanding of DNA, scientists have developed solutions to increase agricultural productivity. Starting from the ability to identify genes that may confer advantages on certain crops, and the ability to work with such characteristics very precisely, biotechnology enhances breeders’ ability to make improvements in crops and livestock. Biotechnology enables improvements that are not possible with traditional crossing of related species alone

  Microbial engineering includes fields such as biotechnology, chemical engineering and alternative fuel development to study the role of microbes in plants, bacteria and machines. Microbial engineering combines microbiology, molecular biology, immunology and chemical engineering. A microbial engineer works in the biological, chemical and engineering aspects of biotechnology, manipulating microbes and developing new uses for bacteria and yeast. A microbial engineer can work in the production of biofuels and other products that are made from renewable resources. The fields of biotechnology, chemical engineering, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and medical device development also employ microbial engineers.

Fermentation is a metabolic process that consumes sugar in the absence of oxygen. The products are organic acids, gases, or alcohol. It occurs in yeast and bacteria, and also in oxygen-starved muscle cells, as in the case of lactic acid fermentation. The science of fermentation is known as zymology. In microorganisms, fermentation is the primary means of producing ATP by the degradation of organic nutrients anaerobically. Humans have used fermentation to produce drinks and beverages since the Neolithic age. For example, fermentation is used for preservation in a process that produces lactic acid as found in such sour foods as pickled cucumbers, kimchi and yogurt (see fermentation in food processing), as well as for producing alcoholic beverages such as wine (see fermentation in winemaking) and beer. Fermentation can even occur within the stomachs of animals, including humans.

In modern molecular biology and genetics, a genome is the genetic material of an organism. It consists of DNA (or RNA in RNA viruses). The genome includes both the genes (the coding regions) and the noncoding DNA,as well as the genetic material of the mitochondria and chloroplasts.As genomic data production has ramped up over the past two decades and is being generated on various platforms around the world, scientists have worked together to establish definitions for terms and data collection standards that apply across the board.More than a century after the Industrial Revolution, advances in DNA sequencing technologies have caused similarly dramatic shifts in scientific research, and one aspect is studying the planet's biodiversity. Microbes play crucial roles in regulating global cycles involving carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus among others, but many of them remain uncultured and unknown. Learning more about this so-called "microbial dark matter" involves extracting microbial genomes from the amplified DNA of single cells and from meta genomes /Genomes Evolve.

Prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms dominate life on Earth with respect to the numbers of individuals and biomass. Yet, the number of species of macro organisms described as well as the estimated numbers of yet to be described species exceeds those of the microorganisms by an order of magnitude. Such numbers give an incomplete picture of the diversity in the microbial world. Only two modes of life are found in higher plants and animals: oxygenic photosynthesis and aerobic respiration. In the microbial world a great variety of processes occur, aerobic as well as anaerobic, phototrophic (oxygenic and anoxygenic), respiratory (with oxygen or other electron acceptors), fermentative and chemoautotrophic (using reduced inorganic compounds as energy sources).  Phylo genetically the microbial world is by far the most diverse
