Proteomics brings researchers closer to understanding microbes that produce acid mine drainage

...ria in a slime, or biofilm, responsible for acidic drainage from the mine. Now, they have gone further and, with the help of colleagues at the DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, identified the proteins that go with these five organisms, their so-called proteomes.
