Preprint from our lab

We discovered that Baltic Sea consortia rich in Geobacter and Methanosarcina carried out syntrophic acetate oxidation (SAO) mediated by conductive particles.  It’s a really exciting finding not only because it is of importance to our understanding of the iron the methane cycles but also because: it raises questions how anthropogenic discharge

Science Perspective

Amelia and Bo wrote a perspective for Science about methane oxidizing bacteria that are finally decoupled from their syntrophic partners. You can find the perspective here. The perspective is with reference to an article in Science by Scheller et al. In this article, the authors managed to decouple ANME-type 2 from their
