Microbes, Methane and Metals: Insights From Geochemistry, Omics and Single Cell Imaging
When: March 3, 2014 11AM PST
NASA Astrobiology NPP Alumni Seminar Series
Consortia of anaerobic methane-oxidizing archaea and sulfate-reducing bacteria consume the majority of methane produced in marine sediments. In this talk, I will discuss insights from trace metal geochemistry and omics sequencing of methane seep ecosystems that shed light on novel deep sea microbial metabolisms. I will also discuss new findings from single-cell imaging that explore the effects of methane on the trace element composition and geomicrobiology of uncultured methanotrophic symbionts.
