Price, M. N.; J. Ray, A. T. Iavarone, H. K. Carlson, E. M. Ryan, R. R. Malmstrom, A. P. Arkin, A. M. Deutschbauer (2019) An Oxidative Pathway of Deoxyribose Catabolism. mSystems. [doi]:1128/mSystems.00297-18
As part of the Environmental Ark campaign to characterize bacteria found at our Oak Ridge Research Field Site in Tennessee, highly collaborative work between ENIGMA and JGI generates data from sediment to use high-throughput genetics to discover a novel catabolic pathway as the first of many. Diverse bacteria use oxidative pathways to consume deoxyribose (a waste product of metabolism).
