ABSTRACT:
Biomining operations are used industrially to extract metal of interest from low grade ores. The time required in these operations is relatively large as different microorganisms take different amount of time in bioleaching or bio oxidation. Extensive research is going in the field of metallurgy and biotechnology to create new strains, by genetic manipulation, which give better yield and take shorter time. This is resulting in a lot of dispersed data around the globe at various locations in the form of literature hard copies and web material. Hence, we try is to create a freely accessible, informative and cumulated data repository of mining bacteria, from which the data related to any kind of mining microorganism can be extracted and any new data related to existing or new strains can be uploaded so that a uniform informational repository is formed. Since, the bacterial groups are the most researched groups amongst the plethora of mining microorganisms, we first aimed at creating a database for the bacterial group, which can further be extended to other groups as well.
