Recent paper in Geobiology

Here is a link to my recent paper from the Summons Lab where I use molecular fossil lipids bound within ooid grains to try to reconstruct microbial taxa and processes that are associated with ooid formation. Ooids were common carbonate sands in Precambrian Earth and have puzzled and intrigued geologists for well over a hundred years. This paper makes significant advances and opens up a number of interesting questions and researching directions! Feel free to get in touch if you want more info or want to share some ideas.
