Microbial Diversity

Methane producing microorganisms are strictly anaerobic and belong to the "third domain of life," the Archaea. Considering the relevance of methane -both as a potent greenhouse gas and as a renewable energy source- relatively little is known about these important organisms. We study various aspects of the methanogenic biology in order to better understand the environmental role of methanogens and to exploit their biotechnological potential.
