Recent Publications 

Recent research in the EMMB lab has focused on mercury binding and methylmercury degradation by methanotrophs, as well characterization of the effect of rare earth elements on methanotrophic physiology and gene expression.  We are also examining the mechanism of copper uptake in methanotrophs and competition for copper between methanotrophs and non-methanotrophs.  Some recent publications include:
