B077:
Unearthing the Metabolic Potential of Microorganisms in the Deep Subsurface Biosphere





Session ID#: 29303

Session Description:
The marine and terrestrial subsurface biospheres represent large reservoirs for life, which have directly impacted surface processes and global cycles throughout Earth’s history. Deep biosphere ecosystems are partially or fully closed to photosynthetically derived energy and carbon and include environments such as hydrothermal systems, ocean sediments and crust, hot and cold springs, aquifers, deep fracture fluids, cave and mine systems, and sub-ice habitats. Recent technological advancements in the field of geobiology have greatly enhanced the curation of microbial functionality in these environments. However the study of uses of energy and carbon, and biogeochemical cycling can be challenging, making it difficult to link microbial function with phylogeny. This session seeks contributions from diverse disciplines that elucidate microbial functionality in subsurface environments, with methods such as isotope geochemistry, biomarker analysis, cultivation-dependent studies and ‘-omics’ analyses.
