    In Earth's distant past, methanogens ruled the world! Delve into the world of microbes and anaerobes, organisms that live without air. The discovery of methanogens, anaerobes that produce methane gas, led to a new understanding of evolutionary history on Earth. In this exciting presentation, we'll explore the role of these mighty microbes in the carbon cycle, learn the secrets of their discovery, and find out how they helped us revise the tree of life.
