Congratulations to Bradley Lab PhD student Margaret Cramm, who has published two exciting new research articles:
First, Margaret is lead-author on a study that characterizes marine microbial communities around an Arctic seabed hydrocarbon seep at Scott Inlet, Baffin Bay. Margaret and co-authors found bacteria typically associated with hydrocarbon and methane oxidation - highlighting the potential role of microbes in mitigating a significant portion of hydrocarbon emissions from the Arctic seep. The study is publishes in Science of the Total Environment, and you can read it here.
Second, Margaret co-authors an exciting new study on subseafloor thermophilic endospores and their response to cooling. The study, published in Environmental Microbiology, is led by Emma Bell of the University of Calgary. Read the paper by following this link.
