Headline: Hopelessly peripatetic. Thoughts and actions ranging from post-Pasteurian microbiology, indiscriminate writing and post-digital media, various forms of performances thespian and corporate, the Long Now and a post-electronic age, and transforming natural philosophy in the 21st century.

Searching for practical microbes in the Amazon forest for the production of cellulosic ethanol. (In Portuguese). Brazil is a major producer of ethanol from sugar cane. Now they want to see if they can branch out to other sources of carbohydrates for ethanol production.

How do you isolate new cellulolytic genes from microbes in a cow rumen? Easy, poke a hole in the side of the cow (a fistula), throw in some bags of grass, pull out grass later and isolate bugs breaking down the grass. A great example of old-time microbiology and new-fangled metagenomic.

"Berg too says he expects more routes to be uncovered. "The diversity of life is bigger than we know now," he says. The research may also offer evolutionary insight. In analysing the enzymes that propel the methylaspartate cycle, the authors found striking similarities to enzymes identified in ancient bacteria, an indication that H. marismortui grabbed the genes needed for the cycle by lateral gene transfer."
Cool in so many ways.
