University of Tunis El Manar

Dr. Afef Najjari is an Assistant Professor of Bioinformatics at the Faculty of Sciences of Tunisia, University of Tunis El Manar. Dr. Afef has worked on several topics including (i) genetic and enzymatic diversities of lactic acid bacteria isolated from dairy and meat products, and (ii) microbial diversity and ecology of extremophilic microbes in arid and saline ecosystems and mainly on archaeal groups. These works were funded by national and international projects. Currently, she is interested in metagenomic analysis, genome assemblies and annotations, transcriptomic data analysis (microarrays), and biological database development.

This book focuses on the diversity and biotechnological applications of metabolites produced by extremophilic microbes thriving in different ecological niches citing the low troposphere, the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants, tropical dry forest, and saline ecosystems. These studies were based on metabolomics and molecular approaches like metagenomics and single-cell genomic analyses. Various implications of Electro-Rheological Fluid are also discussed. The editor embarked on this writing project entitled “Extremophilic Microbes and Metabolites - Diversity, Bioprospecting, and Biotechnological Applications” to make pertinent contributions accessible to the scientific community. Hopefully, a large audience will benefit from the chapters of this book.
