A brief guide for the measurement and interpretation of microbial functional diversity.

David R Johnson, Francesco Pomati,

The importance of functional diversity for the functioning and behavior of microbial communities is clear, yet the widespread incorporation of functional diversity measurements into environmental microbiology study designs remains surprisingly limited. This may, at least to some extent, be a consequence of the unique conceptual and methodological challenges to measuring ... Read more >>

Controlling the self-assembly of new metastable tin vanadium selenides using composition and nanoarchitecture of precursors.

Dmitri Leo Mesoza Cordova, Taryn Mieko Kam, Renae N Gannon, Ping Lu, David C Johnson,

In solid state chemistry, the direct reaction of elements at low temperatures is limited by low solid state interdiffusion rates. This, and the limited number of processing parameters, often prevent the synthesis of metastable compounds. Precisely controlling the number of atoms and nanoarchitecture of layered elemental precursors enabled the selective ... Read more >>
