Abstract
<p>Abstract</p> <p>Background</p> <p>Oceans cover approximately 70% of the Earth's surface with an average depth of 3800 m and a pressure of 38 MPa, thus a large part of the biosphere is occupied by high pressure environments. Piezophilic (pressure-loving) organisms are adapted to deep-sea life and grow optimally at pressures higher than 0.1 MPa. To better understand high pressure adaptation from a genomic point of view three different <it>Photobacterium profundum </it>strains were compared. Using the sequenced piezophile <it>P. profundum </it>strain SS9 as a reference, microarray technology was used to identify the genomic regions missing in two other strains: ...
