Magnetotactic micro organism (MTB) synthesize intracellular nano-sized minerals of magnetite and/or greigite magnetosomes for magnetic orientation. They play very important roles in worldwide iron biking and sedimentary magnetism, and feature a extensive diversity of power purposes in either biotechnological and biomedical fields. in spite of the fact that, as the majority of MTB in nature stay unculturable, our realizing of those particular micro organism continues to be rather restricted. This thesis describes the advance of a singular method for successfully amassing, purifying and characterizing uncultivated magnetotactic micro organism. the range, genomic details and rock magnetic houses of varied uncultivated MTB are investigated and characterised utilizing a mix of organic and geophysical equipment. the consequences will result in a greater figuring out of the biogeography and biomineralization mechanisms of MTB in nature, and enhance our wisdom of the contributions of MTB to biogeochemical cycles of components and sedimentary magnetism.
