Advancing Geomicrobiology and Microbial Geochemistry

2013 Geomicrobiology and Microbial Geochemistry Workshop; Chicago, Illinois, 11–12 October 2013



By examining microbial and geochemical processes together, scientists have been able to gain a vastly clearer picture of how microorganisms shape their surrounding environment and vice versa. This was the central theme of a 2-day workshop held in October 2013 in Chicago, Ill., that brought together 30 leading scientists from the rapidly growing field of geomicrobiology and microbial geochemistry (GMG).
