Climate changing gas from some surprising microbial liaisons
Date:3/31/2008

at are very distantly related. By comparing the gene sequences to some massive databases, we could predict which other microbes could also make dimethyl sulphide, even though no-one had previously suspected that they had this ability, says Dr Curson. This has given us new insights into the who, the how, and the where in the world microbes are producing a gas that affects our planet in so many ways.

We have really only just begun to interpret our findings, and to work out how significant this is. For instance, we have very recently found dimethyl sulphide producing bacteria in the guts of herrings what does that mean? says Dr Curson. We dont yet even know the entire biochemical pathway for any of the three systems we have discovered. If we want to understand climate change better, we have lots to do.
