In conjunction with the Pavilion Lake Research Project (www.pavilionlake.org) we are looking into microbial populations that form rocks in a Canadian lake. This environment is much like we expect early Earth to have looked like, and we aim to understand how microbes help to create the rocks they live on, so we can better understand what early Earth was like.
