Could soil microbes be a solution to the climate crisis?

Research from Arpita Bose’s lab combines nature with the laboratory to innovate solutions to our global climate crisis Much of the focus on climate change mitigation lies in reducing anthropogenic emissions of carbon greenhouse gases (e.g., carbon dioxide, CO2; methane, CH4), which continue to increase. An additional consideration is the...
