Paola’s second preprint

Paola’s second preprint is about an urban lake methanogenic community corroding iron. Jaramillo, P. A. P., & Rotaru, A. E. (2019). Lifeless Clostridia stimulate methanogenesis on Fe0 in an urban lake corrosive community. bioRxiv, 556704 We observed that dead Clostridium stimulate the growth of methanogens, however not as previously assumed via acetate-transfer. CO2-reductive
