Victor Centurion (a guest PhD from Brazil), in collaboration with Prof Campanaro and Dr. Treu published novel results describing the microbial interactions of two biofilms from a Volcanic Island in Maritime Antarctica. The study used genome-centric metagenomics, metabolic flux balance analysis and metatranscriptomics to reveal the metabolic potential of bacteria from sediments with different temperatures (0 – 13 °C). The results unravelled a complex biofilm microbiome represented by more than 180 microbial species; purple bacteria are the community members with the highest connections with other microbial species. Metatranscriptomics results revealed that the chaperone system and proteins counteracting ROS and toxic compounds have a major role in maintaining bacterial cell homeostasis in sediments of volcanic origin.
