In 2010, a team at [[NASA]]'s [[NASA Astrobiology Institute|Astrobiology Institute]] cultured samples of arsenic-resistant [[GFAJ-1]] bacteria from [[Mono Lake]], using a medium high in arsenate and low in phosphate concentration. The findings suggest that the bacteria may partially incorporate arsenate in place of phosphate in some biomolecules, including DNA<ref>[http://www.sciencemag.org/content/early/2010/12/01/science.1197258.short A Bacterium That Can Grow by Using Arsenic Instead of Phosphorus].
