How do bacteria act with built-in electrical wires?

Six years after the sensational discovery of cable bacteria, the Danish National Research Foundation is now awarding a grant of up to DKK 56 million to the Centre for Electromicrobiology at Aarhus University.

The cell is isolated on a membrane filter with pores that are 0.2 micrometer in diameter. The researchers use highly sensitive molecular biology techniques to sequence and map the genomes of microorganisms inhabiting subsurface seabed one cell at a time. Photo: Stefan Braun.

Sediment cores up to 10 m long can be collected from the seabed in Aarhus Bay by gravity coring. The mud in the deepest sections of such cores was deposited 10,000 years ago by the end of the last glaciation. Photo: Nils Risgaard-Petersen.

Microorganisms in the subsurface seabed on evolutionary standby

Researchers have sequenced the genomes of several microorganisms inhabiting the subsurface seabed. The results reveal the extreme evolutionary regime controlling microbial life in the deep biosphere
