THE MICROBIOLOGY OF CLIMATE ACTIVE GASES

Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of Earth's most abundant organosulfur compounds with key roles in global nutrient and sulfur cycling, signalling and potentially climate regulation. Microbial DMSP degradation is the major bio-source of the climate-cooling gas dimethylsulfide (DMS). DMS degradation in anoxic sediments can yield methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, yet little is known of the microbes responsible or how they do so. This PhD aims to elucidate organosulfur-dependent methane generation pathways, their environmental controls in wetland sediments, and to determine their potential importance on global methane production.
