2013 Annual Science Report
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Reporting | SEP 2012 – AUG 2013
Preparation of Review Articles
We prepared a number of astrobiologically-related review articles during the reporting period.
During the reporting period we prepared a number of review articles that document the potential for molecular and isotopic biosignatures to be informative about the nature and physiologies of early Earth microbes. We also reviewed 50 years of progress in geochemistry for volumes marking the 125th anniversary of the Geological Society of America.
