A genetic element that enables rapid, targeted mutation is surprisingly widespread and appears to allow viruses to hunt new microbial prey.
In this episode of JGI’s Genome Insider: Jennifer Pett-Ridge teamed with JGI scientists to improve a protocol, using robots to help process experiments that measure microbial activity in soil.
A collaborative approach highlights how a screening and characterization pipeline could help accelerate algae biotechnology research efforts.

In this guest blog: a behind-the-paper look at the fungus Olpidium, a link in the evolution and transition of fungi from aquatic to terrestrial habitats.
In this episode of the JGI’s Genome Insider, you’re invited to the rhizosphere, where the microbes play.
Montana State University graduate student Nick Reichart spent a year at the JGI through the DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program.
While thousands of species of fungi and bacteria dwell on — and within — the forest floor, who’s recycling the plant biomass?
Combing through the genomes of four anaerobic fungal species has revealed, for the first time, that this group is unexpectedly powerful: they can whip up dozens of complex natural products, including new ones.
In this episode of JGI’s Genome Insider, scientists are working with Pseudomonas putida to help bring about a more sustainable, bio-based economy.
