New insights into how marine bacteria oxidize iron


Iron-eating bacteria are found throughout the global ocean, yet little is known about the mechanics of their oxidation process. An incoming postdoctoral researcher, Roman A. Barco, working with Bigelow Laboratory scientists Dave Emerson and Beth Orcutt have now identified proteins involved in iron-oxidization, as published recently in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
