Title: Microbes in Basalt Thrive on a Mixed Diet of Toxic Wastes
Url: http://www.lbl.gov/Science-Articles/Archive/bug-eating-microbes.html
Creator: Preuss, Paul
Publisher: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Description: Berkley lab news site on the bacterium Arthrobacter oxydans. This bacterium was found Seventy-five meters beneath the surface of a site in Idaho where radioactive waste has been stored for more than 40 years, the microbe living in the pores and crevices of dry basaltic rock was able to reduce a toxic form of chromium to a much less toxic form in the presence of volatile organic wastes. In addition to the article this site provides links to the lab's home page, index, and other news articles.
