Desvelan cómo una bacteria degrada petróleo a baja temperatura

bacteria desgrada vertidos baja temperaturaUn estudio internacional en el que ha participado el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) ha descifrado el genoma de la bacteria Oleispira antartica RB-8, originalmente aislada en el océano Antártico. Esta bacteria, que se encuentra en los océanos y mares, es capaz de degradar hidrocarburos a muy baja temperatura (entre 4 y 6 grados centígrados) a niveles superiores a los mostrados por otras bacterias.
