Jan. 26, 2024

George Lengyel, a Slippery Rock University professor of chemistry, and Christopher Maltman, an SRU assistant professor of biology, co-authored an article titled, “Gordonia metallireducens sp. nov., a tellurite- and selenite-resistant bacterium isolated from the sediment of an acid mine drainage stream,” that was published in the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology. The article details the findings of a new bacterial species highly resistant to tellurite and selenite found in an environment contaminated with acid mine drainage.
