Open Metagenomics Highlight - PloS Biology paper reporting more from Banfield lab on the Acid Mine Drainage
Just a quick "Open Metagneomics" posting here. There is a very interesting paper in PLoS Biology that just came out reporting more detail from Jill Banfield's lab on their studies of an Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) site. This paper is ostly a population genomic study of the microbes living in the AMD. See the paper at PLoS Biology - Population Genomic Analysis of Strain Variation in Leptospirillum Group II Bacteria Involved in Acid Mine Drainage Formation.
