SOP for bioleaching experiments carried out for microscopy analysis at UDE
Biomining is a biotechnological process carried out in many parts of the world that exploits acid loving microorganisms to extract metals from sulphide minerals. One industrial biomining method is called ‘heap bioleaching’ where typically copper containing minerals are piled into very large heaps, acid and microorganisms are added to the top and the soluble metal is collected at the heap base.
The role of the different types of microbes in the process is to speed up metal solubilisation by oxidising
The raw data generated in the scope of the SysMetEx project for RNAseq, proteomics, and imaging analysis.
The data was generated on single and mixed species cultures of A. Caldus, L.ferriphilum, and/or S.thermosulfidooxidans.
Raw RNA data is combined in an ENA umbrella study summarising all short read data generated in the project.
Raw proteomics data is provided for distinct conditions at the pride repository.
Imaging data is provided for distinct conditions at a zenodo repository.
