CLEMSON, South Carolina – In high school, students are taught that research revolves around the scientific method: start with a question, formulate a hypothesis, design and perform an experiment, collect and analyze the data, draw a conclusion, and publish the results.

For millions of years, symbiotic bacteria have lived inside the gill cells of Lucinidae clams found in seagrass meadows located mainly along tropical coasts, such as the Florida Keys. These bacteria play a crucial role in the clam’s survival while also contributing to the overall health of the seagrass in which the clams live. As important as the bacteria are, little was known about their makeup until now. Scientists at Clemson University have recently published a paper indicating that the bacteria are more taxonomically diverse than previously thought.
