Abstract

Halanaerobium Hydrogeniformans is an extremophile hydrogen producing bacteria. The ability to harness this hydrogen production would be extremely useful in the creation of a hydrogen biofuel. It would be most useful to study the hydrogen producing characteristics in inexpensive and easily grown bacteria, in this case yeast. E. Coli was used as an intermediate bacteria between the Hydrogen bug and yeast. Growth conditions were examined between H. Hydrogeniformans and E. Coli. A genetic sequence from the extremophile was chosen for removal, and an intermediate vector was in the process of development.
