New paper characterizing the metabolic pathways of bacteria involved in oil degradation in the DWH oil spill

Through a collaboration with the Teske Lab (UNC) and Tony Gutierrez my 2015 REU student and postdoc (Nina Dombrowski) reconstructed several genomes from DNA-SIP experiments run on DWH spill oil in 2010.
