Select anaerobic metabolisms in Soap Lake, Washington
"Soap Lake is an alkaline (pH 9.8), saline (up to 140 g L⁻¹), meromictic lake in Washington State. One of the goals of the Microbial Observatory at Soap Lake is to increase our understanding of the bacterial and archaeal communities that are present. Studies were conducted by using both traditional culture techniques and DNA analysis. One study was done to identify the organisms responsible for the anaerobic degradation of select osmoregulatory compounds...Isolation and identification of microorganisms that reduce Fe(III) and As(V) were done...All the findings of this thesis research platy a significant role in our understanding the ecosystem of lake and may be applicable in biotech industries or for bioremediation efforts"--Abstract, leaf iv.
