Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 is the halophilic bacterium. This halophile has a great potential to survive on high salinity conditions. The genome of this bacterium has sequenced. The studies have done at metagenomics level, which include the Identification and Molecular Characterization. Identification of this extreme halophile was done by 16S ribotyping and PCR amplification using universal primers FD1 and rP1. The sequences than compared with already sequenced genomes of halophiles. The post genomic tools and microarrays were applied for sequencing. Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 transcriptional profiling showed that it is highly responsive to the environment and give specific responses at gene expression level. There is a need for extensive research at metaproteomic level. To study the expression and function of proteins, whole protein profiling of this specie need to be studied.
