This month, I spoke to Dr Arwyn Edwards about his research into the microbiome of glaciers and the role that bacteria are playing in climate change. I also learnt how fertilizer production and nuclear fallout are affecting microbial diversity in the Arctic.
In our second article, I took a trip to the University of East Anglia to interview the undergraduate students taking part in the annual iGEM competition.
- Information about Arwyn’s research (via Aberystwyth University).
- Arwyn’s recent paper on the bacterial diversity of glacier cryoconite systems (via IOP).
- Details on the UEA’s iGEM team.
