1). Extremophiles abound in such harsh environments as volcanic hot springs; on or in the ice covering lakes (see page 1), glaciers, or the polar seas; in extremely salty bodies of water; in soils and waters having a pH as low as 0 or as high as 12; and in the deep sea or deep in the earth where pressures can exceed atmospheric by over 1000 times. Interestingly, these prokaryotes do not just tolerate their particular environmental extreme but actually require it in order to grow. That is why they are called extremophiles (the suffix -phile means “loving”).

A gene is a segment of DNA that encodes a 4 U N I T 1 • T h e F o u n d at i o n s o f M i c r o b i o l o g y protein or an RNA molecule. The genome is the living blueprint of an organism; the characteristics, activities, and very survival of a cell are governed by its genome. The genomes of prokaryotes and eukaryotes are organized differently. In eukaryotes, DNA is present as linear molecules within the membrane-enclosed nucleus. By contrast, the genome of Bacteria and Archaea is a closed circular chromosome (a few prokaryotes have linear chromosomes).
