Temperature and elemental sulfur shape microbial communities in two extremely acidic aquatic volcanic environments
Aquatic environments of volcanic origin provide an exceptional opportunity to study the adaptations of microbial communities to early planet life conditions such as high temperatures, high metal concentrations, and low pH. ...
C1 compounds shape the microbial community of an abandoned century-old oil exploration well
The search for microorganisms that degrade hydrocarbons is highly relevant because it enables the bioremediation of these substances cheaply and without dangerous by-products. In this work, we studied the microbial communities ...
Rapid shift in microbial community structure in a neutral hydrothermal hot spring from Costa Rica
In this work, we characterize the geochemistry and microbial community of Bajo las Peñas, a neutral (pH 6.5-7.4), hot spring (T = 62.0-68.0°C) located near Turrialba Volcano, Costa Rica. The microbiota at its two sources ...
Bocaparvovirus, Erythroparvovirus and Tetraparvovirus in New World Primates from Central America
Parvoviruses in the genera Bocaparvovirus (HBoV), Erythroparvovirus (B19) and Tetraparvovirus (PARV4) are the only autonomous parvoviruses known to be associated with human and non‐human primates based on studies and ...
Microbial Community Structure Alogn a Horizontal Oxygen Gradient in a Costa Rican Volcanic Influeced Acid Rock Drainage System
We describe the geochemistry and microbial diversity of a pristine environment that resembles an acid rock drainage (ARD) but it is actually the result of hydrothermal and volcanic influences. We designate this environment, ...
