Study of experimental systems for monitoring and manipulation of the extreme environment. Environmental characterization and measurement of environmental gradients in situ on a microscale. Development of instrumentation and sensors (including bio-sensors) for data collection in extreme environments (e.g. pH <3, temperature> 50 ° C, salinity> 200). Moreover, the Action considers the possible development of DNA microchips and / or molecular advanced analysis for the evaluation of the microbial genetic diversity in situ.
