Url: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/953356.stm
Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation
Description: This on-line news article reports that scientists have sequenced the genome of the first salt-loving extremophile, a microorganism that can survive in conditions 10 times saltier than seawater. This halophile, called Halobacterium, can be found in hypersaline water such as the Great Salt Lakes and the Dead Sea and may have implications for life on other planets, such as Mars.
