Hey there micro fans,

	Does anyone have an idea where Beggiatoa stands presently with 
regards to whether or not it is thought of as an autotroph?
	
	I know that since Winogradsky first characterized it this way, 
there's been controversy. (Yes, I *know* that was a longgggg time ago)
 Is it better known as a mixotroph, rather than an chemoautotroph?

	Thanks for any input.
