The Louisiana Shelf in the Gulf of Mexico experiences recurrent bottom water hypoxia under summertime eutrophic conditions. The onset, maintenance, and breakdown of hypoxia are associated with dynamic microbial biogeochemical cycles. However, the distribution of microbial taxa and metabolisms across Shelf oxygen gradients remains under-characterized. We combined biogeochemical analyses of nitrogen (N) distributions and metabolic rates with metagenomic and metatranscriptomic analysis of… CONTINUE READING
