The past two decades have seen an enormous increase in the wealth of observational data that reveal the nature of star-forming gas in the interstellar medium of high-redshift galaxies. New facilities operating in the submm through cm-wavelength regime have allowed us to study the molecular gas content of galaxies as far back as the first billion years after the big bang, while ionised atomic gas emitting at mm-wavelengths has been detected at even earlier cosmic times. These observations provide important insight into galaxy formation processes and will ultimately help us to understand how galaxies get their gas. In this seminar, I will present some recent PdBI, JVLA and ALMA observations of massive galaxies that existed during the first six billion years of the universe.
