A team from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst have discovered a new cooperative behavior in anaerobic bacteria known as “interspecies electron transfer” that they believe could be used towards changing the global carbon cycle and how we understand bioenergy. In their research, the UMass team discovered that two different species of microorganisms were able to cooperate to consume food at a faster rate than they would be able to on their own. And since consumption of such matter could lead to the production of natural gases such as methane and is an increasingly popular method for producing natural gas, the finding could be a breakthrough for the renewable energy.
