Microbes enjoying the balmy summer on the permafrost

Global warming is causing vast areas of permafrost to thaw. Research by ACE just published in Nature Communications and discussed in UQ news reports a novel family of microbes that flourish as permafrost thaws.

Behold the power of phage

Get ready to go viral. Last week, The Scientist published an article by former UQ Post-doc and PhD student Jeremy Barr and up-and-coming science writer Breeann Kirby, which discusses the nature of phage, viruses that infect bacteria.
