Gene context of Spores, Bacterial

  • Levels of bacterial spores per square meter on the VLC-1 and VLC-2 were 1.6 x 10(2) and 9.7 x 10(1), respectively, prior to dry-heat sterilization [16].
  • Radiation-dependent limit for the viability of bacterial spores in halite fluid inclusions and on Mars [17].
  • A method has been devised to differentiate viable and nonviable bacterial spores. "Germination-like" changes are initiated in spores with performic acid and lysozyme [18].
