Description
Stable isotope tracers can measure metabolism of specific compounds in the absence of pure cultures. This project will measure carbon fixation and metabolism of small organic molecules using stable isotope analyses in order to link the occurrence of specific compounds to the organisms that metabolize them under different pressure, temperature, and energy conditions.

    Update Details:

    [2012-12-01] Initial analyses on freshly cored materials from northern California underway. Include: solid-phase organic carbon and nitrogen, carbon stable isotope composition of organic carbon. These results are coupled with thermodynamic and bioenergetic models for future correlation with microbial population profiles and metabolic activity measurements.
