FEMS Microbiology Ecology Webinar on Biogeochemical Cycling

 Registration is closed for this event

Join our upcoming webinar on Biogeochemical Cycling featuring three recent papers from FEMS Microbiology Ecology.

The first paper investigates the use of a new 'agar pillar' approach to study the ecology of cable bacteria in freshwater systems, providing a new strategy that may facilitate the cultivation of redox gradient-dependent microorganisms.

The second paper explores the impact of nitrate fertilizers on iron and arsenic mobility in groundwater, revealing that nitrate-dependent anaerobic methane oxidation can stimulate As and Mn release.

The third paper examines the population dynamics of nitrifiers in drinking water treatment plant biofilters and suggests potential weaker synergistic relationships between strict ammonia and nitrite oxidizers enable complete ammonia oxidizing bacteria to displace strict nitrite oxidizers. Don't miss the chance to learn about these exciting findings and their implications for understanding biogeochemical cycling in different habitats.

FEMS is delighted to develop a series of webinars to discuss key research published in the FEMS journal portfolio, as a way to bring some of the benefits of scientific conferences to the comfort of your own home.
