Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 Cultures
Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 is what you've been waiting for! This new, colorful model microbe and member of Archaea, the 3rd domain of life, is ideal for classroom study. Nonpathogenic and easy to manipulate, Halobacterium grows in medium so sallty that few other conventional microbes can survive it. The organism's love of salt and its ability to survive extremes of desiccation, radiation, and oxygen stress have long made it a fascinating subject of study.
