SHALLOW- AND DEEP-WATER
The Beinart lab investigates the ecology and physiology of symbiosis between invertebrates (primarily snails and bivalves) and chemosynthetic bacteria. These are found in both shallow- and deep-water habitats with high concentrations of reduced chemicals (e.g., sulfide, hydrogen, methane) that the symbionts can use for energy.
