Project: Ecological and molecular study of gene-mobilizing capacity of soils and related ecosystems.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-93 – 31-DEC-99
- Gain insight in the natural gene flow via conjugation of bacteria in soil and to evaluate the gene mobilizing capacity of the natural bacterial soil population. Comparison of the gene transfer potential in polluted soils (organic and inorganic pollutants) and non-polluted soils. Study of the fate, survival and dissemination of genes of introduced genetically modified microorganisms into the soil.
