Dr. Hoehler delivers keynote lecture at ISSM 2011

Tori Hoehler (SSX) delivered a keynote lecture at the 2011 meeting of the International Society for Subsurface Microbiology. Hoehler’s lecture, entitled, “Energetic constraints on subsurface life: A case study of methanogenesis in serpentinizing systems” focused on constraining the habitability of subsurface environments through thermodynamic and bioenergetic models. The lecture focused on a case study developed specifically for assessing the habitability of the Martian subsurface.
