Project Progress

This last year saw significant progress on several related projects. We published a paper in Geobiology that uses genomics to deduce that sulfur-reduction is the most plausible early metabolism for the Archaea. We also published a paper on the microibal ecosystem at methane seeps in Eel River Basin. Also, in collaboration with the Rhode Island group, we have submitted two manuscripts related to the marine subsurface biosphere.
