Will Antarctic worms warm to changing climate?
Date:12/20/2011

s also could have important economic applications.

Marsh and colleague Joe Grzymski at the Desert Research Institute in Nevada recently co-founded Evozym Biologics, a startup company, to accelerate the discovery of useful proteins for developing new antibiotic drugs and biofuels. The catalyst was their respective research on other Antarctic "extremophiles"soil microbes for Grzymski and Antarctic sea urchins for Marsh.

"This information has a huge potential for commercial use in the field of synthetic biology," Marsh notes. "Many of the industrial-scale processes that utilize enzymes require that these proteins are synthetically designed to work efficiently under extreme conditions. In bioreactors, for example, conditions of high heat or high acid are common and require bioengineered proteins for increased stability and catalytic efficiency."
