Title: Glacial Lake Hides Bacteria
Url: http://www.bioedonline.org/news/news.cfm?art=1098
Creator: Peplow, Mark
Publisher: Baylor College of Medicine
Description: This article highlights the published work of a geomicrobiology research team led by Eric Gaidos from the University of Hawaii and Brian Lanoil, from the University of California, Riverside. This group reports the identification of bacteria from an Icelandic sub-glacial lake, and how the collection and description of these microorganisms immured within glacial ice and sub-surface water serve as a model in the search for extra-terrestrial life.
