The Effects of Perchlorate on Chr20 Extremophile Bacteria Growth in Martian Simulant and Regolith

Harandi, Bijan


  • This thesis investigates the effects of perchlorate (ClO4-) salt on halophilic cyanobacteria extremophile Chr20 growth in Martian simulant and regolith, specifically MMS (Mojave Mars Simulant) and sawdust from the EETA79001 meteorite respectively. This extremophile, given its genetic similarity to Gloeocapsa sp, has been the subject of much study in regard to its potential to survive on Mars, which ... read more
