Abstract: Among the many pressures that marine organisms face, intense competition and predation have contributed to the evolution of chemical defenses and the ability to sense chemical cues. Chemical ecologists have long sought to understand the identities, functions, and consequences of these compounds in the marine environment.  However, traditional approaches to connect naturally occurring chemical compounds with ecological outcomes have…

Abstract:  Microbial sulfur metabolism plays a critical role in the transformation of organic carbon compounds and nutrients in the environment, human health and disease, and drives key planetary biogeochemical cycles. Our current knowledge of the microbial ecology associated with this key element is primarily based on single gene- and cultivation-based studies that provide no reliable information on comprehensive microbial metabolism and paint…
