Project: Introduction of genes in microbial associations in order to accelerate bio degradation and increase cell retention time.
- project duration
- 31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
- The project aims at the stimulation of the degradation of xenobiotics in soil and the increase of cell retention time in active sludge systems by the introduction of plasmides. A technology for the efficient introduction of plasmid bound catabolic genes will be developped. Plasmides carrying genes involved in cell surface interactions in between floc forming microorganisms will be isolated.
