Abstract

Research proposals related to geohydrological and geochemical factors that control microbial abundance and diversity at depth, the microbial ecology of subsurface systems, and improved understanding of microbial-environmental relationships are being accepted for the Department of Energy's Deep Microbiology Program.

Proposals received by November 1, 1990, will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary panel that will be convened in early 1991. Successful applicants will work as members of multiinstitutional, interdisciplinary research teams. DOE will help successful applicants integrate their research with currently funded research projects and will provide uncompromised subsurface sediment and groundwater samples for geochemical and microbiological analyses.
