Microbial Life Inside and Outside of Seafloor Hydrocarbon Seeps

Microbes found deeper in the ocean are believed to have slow population turnover rates and low amounts of available energy. However, microbial communities found deeper in seafloor sediments in and around hydrocarbon seepage sites have more energy available and higher population turnover rates than previously thought.

Researchers have shown the fundamental role of the heterochromatin protein 1a (HP1a) in the reorganization of the 3D chromatin structure after fertilization. By combining powerful Drosophila genetics with 3D genome modeling, they discovered that HP1a is required to establish a proper chromatin 3D structure at multiple hierarchical levels during early embryonic development.
