This book of abstracts contains the communications presented at the second meeting on biotechnology of extremophiles. Three different clusters were created within the framework of the project: temperature, pH and salt. Research on thermophilic bacteria includes enzyme production, glucose metabolism and genetic studies. Research on acidophilic and alkaliphilic bacteria includes genomic organisation studies, cloning and in vitro mutagenesis, and kinetic studies. Research on halophilic bacteria includes effects of amino acids, polar lipid and fatty acid composition studies, and cloning and in vitro mutagenesis.
