Distribution of putative denitrifying methane oxidizing bacteria in sediment of a freshwater lake, Lake Biwa.
Methane oxidation coupled to denitrification is mediated by 'Candidatus Methylomirabilis oxyfera', which belongs to the candidate phylum NC10. The distribution of putative denitrifyingExpand

Microbial Community Structure, Pigment Composition, and Nitrogen Source of Red Snow in Antarctica
Abstract“Red snow” refers to red-colored snow, caused by bloom of cold-adapted phototrophs, so-called snow algae. The red snow found in Langhovde, Antarctica, was investigated from severalExpand
