I am very intrigued by the microorganisms that survive in the extreme and their interactions with these surroundings. Be it from the freezing glaciers of the Antarctic, or the scorching fluids that spout from hydrothermal vents, these microorganisms adapt and sometimes even thrive under harsh conditions. Hence, learning about how the organisms of the deep sea biosphere survive, and the biogeochemical processes involved in them are of great interest to me.
