Our group focuses on the exploration of organisms inhabiting submarine shallow-water hydrothermal vent systems. The study of these extremophiles presents an enormous opportunity, because they (1) provide a window into a microbiome characterized by high metabolic versatility and unique adaptations to extreme conditions, they (2) are vastly understudied, and they (3) combine easy accessibility with a wide range of geological, chemical, and biological processes similar to those taking place at deep-sea vents.
