Title: Wetlands, Microbes, and the Carbon Cycle: Behind the Scenes @ Berkeley Lab

Susannah Tringe, who leads the Metagenome Program at the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute (JGI), a collaboration in which Berkeley Lab plays a leading role, takes us behind the scenes to more »show how DNA from unknown wild microbes is extracted and analyzed to see what role they play in the carbon cycle.
