Zymo Research Partners with TeaComposition H2O Project
Nature-based climate change mitigation at the microbial level
February 6th, 2018
IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zymo Research Corp. has teamed up with the Blue Carbon Lab, an academic research group at Australia's Deakin University, and colleagues at the Portuguese Centre for Marine Sciences, University of Algarve, on the 'TeaComposition H2O' project. This is a global initiative that will link litter decomposition with the microbial communities driving the process, uncovering critical information that could inform nature-based climate change mitigation initiatives involving wetlands. This project was born from recent discoveries that marine and freshwater wetlands are among the most efficient carbon-sequestering ecosystems on earth.
The TeaComposition H2O initiative, in following suit with the terrestrial sister initiative TeaComposition, was named for the use of a novel scientific approach for measuring carbon decomposition with household tea bags. Specifically, green and red tea bags, manufactured by Lipton®, are being used as a model for plant litter. Over 350 sites in 35 countries have been selected to track the microbial communities along with the decomposition. More than 19,000 tea bags have been deployed in various coastal and freshwater wetlands as well as streams, ponds, and seaweed ecosystems.
Zymo Research will partner with this global initiative by providing scientific support and tools to study the microbial properties across the multiple testing sites. Specifically, Zymo Research's latest technologies in the field of microbiomics, ZymoBIOMICS® will be at the forefront of this project. The company is donating some of their products to the initiative: DNA/RNA Shield collection devices, ZymoBIOMICS® Microbial Community Standards, and the ZymoBIOMICS® DNA Miniprep Kit. In addition, they will provide library preparation, sequencing, and bioinformatics services at a reduced cost.
