Data supplement to \"A Study in Blue: Secondary Copper-rich Minerals and their Associated Bacterial Diversity in Icelandic Lava Tubes\"

Nina Kopacz
Lava tubes on Earth represent some of the most enticing Martian analogue environments when investigating the possibility of past or present life on Mars. Lava tubes provide stable, sheltered environments, isolated and protected from the radiation on the surface. The microbial mats in these caves further regulate the environment for life, allowing various microbial communities with different metabolisms to coexist. This adaptation is so successful, one could imagine such a microbe-mineral continuum might occur on...
