Microbe Metabolism Aids Metal Cleanup
At a former vanadium- and uranium-processing site in Colorado, geomicrobiologists have uncovered a community of anaerobic bacteria that make a living through diverse metabolisms, some of which have never been seen before in bacteria (Science, 10.1126/science.1224041). The discovery could aid bioremediation of contaminated sites to remove toxic heavy metals. To stimulate bacterial growth at the contaminated site, . . .
