Looking for an opportunity to develop a new symbiosis model system with great potential for your career growth and future research? Are you fascinated by intracellular bacterial symbionts, like those that support the iconic deep-sea hydrothermal vent and cold seep communities? These and similar symbionts support enormous quantities of biomass throughout the oceans by giving their hosts superpowers, like the ability to use hydrogen sulfide, methane, hydrogen and cellulose as nutrient and energy sources. But research has been hampered by one important fact. None of these marine intracellular symbionts or hosts have been successfully grown in pure culture -until now. This new project will generate and use genetically modified symbiont strains to study symbiont acquisition, maintenance and the development of symbiont communities in shipworms (marine wood-eating bivalves), the only marine intracellular bacterial symbiosis in which both host and symbionts can be grown in laboratory culture.
