Great topic!!! I thought your topic was very organized and easy to transition to the next section!! Maybe you could change the wording of your first sentence under Transfer of Electrons. I thought it was awkward the way you worded this sentence (Once the biofilm adhering the microbe to the metal is formed). Nice use of figures! Overall, your topic was very thorough and interesting! Good luck!

Shewanella are gram-negative, proteobacteria that are facultative anaerobes and can respire on a tremendous variety of inorganic and organic electron acceptors. One such electron acceptor is Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>, which is commonly found in the clay hematite.

<br>The genus Shewanella consists of gram-negative proteobacteria that are typically rod shaped, 2-3 μm in length and 0.4-0.7 μm in diameter (Fig 1). These facultative anaerobes are often found in marine sediments, and can swim with the aid of a single polar flagellum  (Venkateswaran et al., 1999). Since the modern characterization Shewanella in 1988, DNA:DNA hybridization and 16S  rRNA sequencing has been used to identify more than 40 distinct species. The features that characterize this genus include psychrotolerance, mild halophilicity, and the capacity to reduce an unparalleled array of inorganic and organic compounds for respiration (Galnick et al., 2007). Their capacity to respire on various metals as well as their production of endogenous hydrocarobons has ignited tremendous interest in the characterization and potential applications of these microorganisms. <br>

Great topic!!! I thought your topic was very organized and easy to transition to the next section!! Maybe you could change the wording of your first sentence under Transfer of Electrons. I thought it was awkward the way you worded this sentence (Once the biofilm adhering the microbe to the metal is formed). Nice use of figures! Overall, your topic was very thorough and interesting! Good luck!


This was really interesting and well written. I learned a lot from reading it! I did catch some small edits that you need to do.
