Abstract:
Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 is an important model Fe(III)-reducing bacterium due to its unique metabolic flexibility including the ability to reduce a wide range of organic and inorganic substrates. The recent availability of the complete genome sequence for this organism together with the application of cutting edge postgenomic techniques are leading to a detailed understanding of the physiology of this organism under a wide range of environmental conditions. In this thesis, a multidisciplinary approach combining microbiology, electron microscopy, spectroscopy and analytical chemistry has been used to dissect the physiology of S. oneidensis MR-1 under a range of growth conditions, and the interactions of the organism with redox active organics and metals has been explored.
