Polaromonas strain JS666 part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This web page highlights the microbe Polaromonas strain JS666. The microbe was found to degrade trans-1,2-dichloroethene (tDCE), TCE, VC, 1,2-dichloroethane (1,2-DCA) and ETH in addition to coal tar; ...

Geobacter metallireducens part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This web page features the microbe Geobacter metallireducens. The site briefly describes the ability of Geobacter metallireducens to gain energy through the dissimilatory reduction of iron, ...

Burkholderia cepacia R1808 part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This web page features the Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc). Comprised of at least nine closely related species, the Bcc is known for bioremediation and metabolic diversity. The site includes a ...

Hardy Microbe Thrives at pH 0 part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This article reports that a team of geomicrobiologists has detected a new microbe, called Ferroplasma acidarmanus, surviving in some of the most acidic waters on Earth - a seemingly impossible pH ...

The Microbial Arsenic Cycle in Mono Lake, California part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This minireview summarizes the biogeochemical arsenic cycle in the alkaline, hypersaline Mono Lake. Some prokaryotes of the lake have evolved biochemical mechanisms to exploit arsenate and arsenite, ...

Phylogenetic Analysis of the Hyperthermophilic Pink Filament Community in Octopus Spring, Yellowstone National Park part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This journal article reports the molecular phylogenetic approach used to analyze a microbial community associated with the 84 to 88 degrees C outflow from Octopus Spring. The authors perform ...

Signature Lipids and Stable Carbon Isotope Analyses of Octopus Spring Hyperthermophilic Communities Compared with Those of Aquificales Representatives part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This journal article reports a study originally intended to examine the microbial composition of Octopus Spring and nearby vent biofilms. The article compares the lipid profiles of several genera ...

Diversity, Ecology and Evolution of Microorganisms Inhabiting Hot Spring Microbial Mats part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This website is part of the Frontiers in Investigative Biological Research (FIBR) Project 'Do Species Matter in Microbial Communities?' led by Principal Investigator David Ward. Following an ...

Seasonal Distributions of Dominant 16S rRNA-Defined Populations in a Hot Spring Microbial Mat Examined by Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This journal abstract reports the distributions of bacterial populations within a microbial mat of Octopus Spring in Yellowstone National Park. Sites along the thermal gradient of the spring's ...
