Project: Adaptation of microbial communities to organic contaminants in oligotrophic aquifers.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-01 – 31-DEC-03
- The major goal of the project is to find out how significantly and in which direction the microbial community structure of an oligotrophic aquifer changes when that community is challenged with organic pollutants. Thus, we will make a comparison of the genetic composition of the oligotrophic microbial communities before and after exposure to a pollutant plume passing through an aquifer.
