Microbes, Methane and Metals: Insights From Geochemistry, Omics and Single Cell Imaging

Presenter: Jennifer Glass, Georgia Institute of Technology
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.

NPP Alumni Seminars

  • The NASA Postdoctoral Program has been extraordinarily successful in supporting new leaders in the astrobiology community. Upon completion of their postdoctoral fellowships, the Astrobiology Fellows are given the opportunity to present a seminar to share their work with one another and with the astrobiology community at large.
