  • Actinobacteria and cyanobacteria diversity in terrestrial Antarctic microenvironments using culture-dependent and independent methods

    Rego, Adriana; Raio, Francisco; Martins, Teresa P.; Ribeiro, Hugo; Sousa, António G. G.; Silva, Joana; Baptista, Mafalda S.; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Cary, S. Craig; Ramos, Vitor; Carvalho, Maria F.; Leão, Pedro N.; Magalhães, Catarina (Frontiers Media, 2019)
    Bacterial diversity from McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica, the largest desert on earth, has become more easily assessed with the development of High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) techniques. However, some of the diversity ...
  • Adaptations to submarine hydrothermal environments exemplified by the genome of Nautilia profundicola

    Campbell, Barbara J.; Smith, Julie L.; Hanson, Thomas E.; Klotz, Martin G.; Stein, Lisa Y.; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Wu, Dongying; Robinson, Jeffrey M.; Khouri, Hoda M.; Eisen, Jonathan A.; Cary, S. Craig (Public Library of Science, 2009)
    Submarine hydrothermal vents are model systems for the Archaean Earth environment, and some sites maintain conditions that may have favored the formation and evolution of cellular life. Vents are typified by rapid fluctuations ...
  • Airborne microbial transport limitation to isolated Antarctic soil habitats

    Archer, Stephen David James; Lee, Kevin C.; Caruso, Tancredi; Maki, Teruya; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Cary, S. Craig; Cowan, Don A.; Maestre, Fernando T.; Pointing, Stephen B. (Nature Publishing Group, 2019)
    Dispersal is a critical yet poorly understood factor underlying macroecological patterns in microbial communities1. Airborne microbial transport is assumed to occupy a central role in determining dispersal outcomes2,3, and ...
  • Ancient origins determine global biogeography of hot and cold desert cyanobacteria

    Bahl, Justin; Lau, Maggie C.Y.; Smith, Gavin J.D.; Vijaykrishna, Dhanasekaran; Cary, S. Craig; Lacap, Donnabella C.; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Papke, Thane; Warren-Rhodes, Kimberley A.; Wong, Fiona K.Y.; McKay, Christopher P.; Pointing, Stephen B. (Macmillan Publishers Limited, 2010)
    Factors governing large-scale spatio-temporal distribution of microorganisms remain unresolved, yet are pivotal to understanding ecosystem value and function. Molecular genetic analyses have focused on the influence of ...
  • Benthic microbial communities of coastal terrestrial and ice shelf Antarctic meltwater ponds.

    Archer, Stephen David James; McDonald, Ian R.; Herbold, Craig W.; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Cary, S. Craig (Frontiers, 2015)
    The numerous perennial meltwater ponds distributed throughout Antarctica represent diverse and productive ecosystems central to the ecological functioning of the surrounding ultra oligotrophic environment. The dominant ...
