Multimedia Release 1-Sep-2022 Minerals and microbes: Co-exist and interact Peer-Reviewed Publication Science China Press video: Minerals and microbes mutually interact across all spatial and temporal scales. Throughout Earth’s history, both minerals and microbes increase their species diversity and functional complexity. The evolving mineral-microbe interactions over geological time play critical roles in driving geological events such as occurrence of the Great Oxidation Event and the formation of large ore deposits. Mineral-microbe interactions also have many biotechnological applications. view more Credit: ©China University of Geosciences，Beijing Journal National Science Review DOI 10.1093/nsr/nwac128 Disclaimer: AAAS and EurekAlert! are not responsible for the accuracy of news releases posted to EurekAlert! by contributing institutions or for the use of any information through the EurekAlert system.
