Local marine sediments

We find many local relatives of deep biosphere bacteria, archaea and fungi around Delaware. Using these readily accessible sediments, we are examining why microorganisms are where they are in sediments and if we can measure variables that inform us on a microbe’s function. Many sedimentary microbes are uncultivated, so employ genomic methods to examine them.
