January 23, 2013 Publication: Effects of H2 and formate on growth yield and regulation of methanogenesis in Methanococcus maripaludis.

Here we report that during continuous culture of Methanococcus maripaludis under defined nutrient conditions, growth yields relative to methane production decreased markedly with either H(2) excess or formate excess.

January 23, 2013 Publication: Metallochaperones Regulate Intracellular Copper Levels

This model accurately recapitulates known dynamical properties of the Cu circuit and predicts that intracellular Cu-buffering emerges as a consequence of the interplay of paralogous metallochaperones that traffic and allocate Cu to distinct targets.

April 06, 2012 Mapping transcription factor binding sites

The Marc Facciotti lab at UC Davis published A workflow for genome-wide mapping of archaeal transcription factors with ChIP-seq. This paper demonstrates a novel ChIP-seq workflow for mapping genome-wide binding sites of natively expressed transcription factors in archaea. Gaggle software features prominently.
