Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Microbes play a key role in many aqueous geochemical processes, influencing all major elemental cycles. However, as Warren and Kauffman explain in their Perspective, the metabolism of many microbial strains and hence their influence on geochemical processes remain unknown. Microbial communities may leave specific "fingerprints" on geochemical processes. Integrated, geochemical and functional genetic studies will identify these microbial fingerprints by comparing how microbes engineer geochemical processes in different systems.
