Archaeal and anaerobic methane oxidizer communities in the Sonora Margin cold seeps, Guaymas Basin (Gulf of California)
Cold seeps, located along the Sonora Margin transform fault in the Guaymas Basin, were extensively explored during the ‘BIG’ cruise in June 2010. They present a seafloor mosaic pattern consisting ofExpand

Presence of oxygen and aerobic communities from sea floor to basement in deep-sea sediments
The depth of oxygen penetration and microbial activity in marine sediments varies by region. Sediment cores from the South Pacific Gyre host oxygen and aerobic microbial communities to at least 75Expand

Shewanella profunda sp. nov., isolated from deep marine sediment of the Nankai Trough.
A novel piezotolerant, mesophilic, facultatively anaerobic, organotrophic, polarly flagellated bacterium (strain LT13a(T)) was isolated from a deep sediment layer in the Nankai Trough (Leg 190, OceanExpand

Construction of a Shuttle Vector for, and Spheroplast Transformation of, the Hyperthermophilic Archaeon Pyrococcus abyssi
ABSTRACT Our understanding of the genetics of species of the best-studied hyperthermophilic archaea, Pyrococcus spp., is presently limited by the lack of suitable genetic tools, such as a stableExpand
