Antoine Pagé
Post-Doctoral Fellow

Research interests:

  • Microbial biogeochemistry
  • Archaeal physiology
  • Ecology of extremophiles
  • Geomicrobiology
I study the roles of microorganisms in marine biogeochemical cycles. Currently, the objectives of my research are to describe: (1) the molecular mechanisms underlying the anaerobic oxidation of methane (AOM), and (2) the processes controlling the activity of microorganisms that catalyze AOM in marine sediments. I use environmental genomics and proteomics as tools to reconstruct metabolic pathways, evaluate genome diversity, and interpret physiological diversity in specific phylogenetic clusters.
