New Method of Microbial Energy Production Discovered

Tue, 05/09/2017 - 08:00
For all living things to succeed, they must reproduce and have the energy to do so. An organism's ability to extract energy from its surroundings—and to do it better than its competitors—is a key requirement of survival. Until recently it was thought that in all of biology, from microbes to humans, there were only two methods to generate and conserve the energy required for cellular metabolism and survival.
