Study Detail

TitleMicrobial communities of hydrothermal vent in the Okinawa Trough: Yokosuka field at Yaeyama knoll
Study TypeOther
Abstract In deep-sea hydrothermal fields, unique minerals, called chimney structures, are formed by the interaction between seawater and vent fluids. Chimney structures represent suitable habitat for a variety of microorganisms. We analyzed the microbial community structure within a chimney structure.
