iron. Having the ability to direct electrons to metals allows them to change their chemistry and availability.

Bacteria have been changing the chemistry of the environment for billions of years, said Gralnick. Their ability to make iron soluble is key to metal cycling in the environment and essential to most life on earth.

The process could be reversed to prevent corrosion of iron and other metals on ships. Bond and Gralnick were each recently awarded funding from the U.S. Navy to explore this and other potential applications.
