• Deciphering a Marine Bone-Degrading Microbiome Reveals a Complex Community Effort 

      Borchert, Erik; Garcia-Moyano, Antonio; Sánchez-Carrillo, Sergio; Dahlgren, Thomas Gunnar; Slaby, B; Bjerga, Gro Elin Kjæreng; Ferrer, Manuel; Franzenburg, Sören; Hentschel, Ute (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The marine bone biome is a complex assemblage of macro- and microorganisms; however, the enzymatic repertoire to access bone-derived nutrients remains unknown. The bone matrix is a composite material made up mainly of ...
    • New ecosystems in the deep subsurface follow the flow of water driven by geological activity 

      Borgonie, Gaetan; Magnabosco, Cara; Garcia-Moyano, Antonio; Linage-Alvarez, Borja; Ojo, Abidemi Oluranti; Freese, Leanne Brenda; van Jaarsveld, Charl; Van Rooyen, Christelle; Kuloyo, Olukayode; Cason, Errol Duncan; Vermeulen, J.; Pienaar, C.; van Heerden, Esta; Lollar, Barbara Sherwood; Onstott, Tullis C.; Mundle, Scott O.C. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Eukarya have been discovered in the deep subsurface at several locations in South Africa, but how organisms reach the subsurface remains unknown. We studied river-subsurface fissure water systems and identified Eukarya ...
    • A Novel Moderately Thermophilic Type Ib Methanotroph Isolated from an Alkaline Thermal Spring in the Ethiopian Rift Valley 

      Islam, Tajul; Gessesse, Amare; Garcia-Moyano, Antonio; Murrell, J. Colin; Øvreås, Lise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Aerobic moderately thermophilic and thermophilic methane-oxidizing bacteria make a substantial contribution in the control of global warming through biological reduction of methane emissions and have a unique capability ...
    • Two-step functional screen on multiple proteinaceous substrates reveals temperature-robust proteases with a broad-substrate range 

      Garcia-Moyano, Antonio; Diaz, Yuleima; Navarro, Jose; Almendral, David; Puntervoll, Pål; Ferrer, Manuel; Bjerga, Gro Elin Kjæreng (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      To support the bio-based industry in development of environment-friendly processes and products, an optimal toolbox of biocatalysts is key. Although functional screen of (meta)genomic libraries may potentially contribute ...
