Further down in the article you'll find this illuminating quote:

"Dr. Voytek's primary research interest is aquatic microbial ecology and biogeochemistry. She studies environmental controls on microbial transformations of nutrients, xenobiotics, and metals in freshwater and marine systems."

Very interesting to me considering all the recent hub-bub about water on Mars. My thought has always been, where there's water, there's life.
