Caption: Research scientist Jana Stöckel, Ph.D., and postdoctoral fellow Anindita Banerjee, Ph.D., examine cultures of algae in one of the environmental chambers in Himadri Pakrasi's lab at Washington University in St. Louis. The two have recently been studying a strain of cyanobacteria (once considered algae) that produces copious amounts of hydrogen gas as a side effect of fixing nitrogen.
