CarboMagnet : Contribution of magnetotactic bacteria forming intracellular carbonate mineral phases to the sequestration of organic carbon and alkaline earth elements

Abstract  The project focuses on a poorly known carbon-sequestering environmental process by a group of diverse bacteria forming intracellular carbonates, occurring at oxic/anoxic boundaries (OAB) in aquatic environments. The molecular and geochemical processes of bacterial biomineralization will be studied by
