Microorganisms could exist beyond Earth and they could be based on different amino acids than the life forms on Earth.

This new finding can give us an idea about the possibility of extreme life forms existing on other planets.
Researchers can now detect bacteria and their shape, can't pinpoint the type of species.
Using bacteria, scientist in New York found a way to grow nacre that is very close to the real thing.
Resistance can be passed from bacteria to bacteria without transferring plasmid DNA: Study.
