Mine runoff continues to provide clues to microbial diversification

ce. In that paper, Banfield, Hettich and colleagues at ORNL describe the bacterial community that thrives in what amounts to sulfuric acid. Their work set the stage for the latest development because it provided the first large-scale proteome dataset for a real-life microbial community with a limited number of members.

Of particular interest to DOE is how this effort relates to its Genomes to Life program, which is focused on identifying and characterizing the molecular machines of life. This study helps extend the initial studies of microbial isolates growth in carefully controlled laboratory settings to more real-world complicated microbial communities.
