Acquisition and ongoing evolution of synthetic xenobiotic metabolic pathways in soil bacteria
Man-made toxic chemicals have the potential to cause serious harm to humans and ecosystems. The long half-lives of many of these chemicals mean that they will remain a problem well into the future and require intervention to limit their harmful effects. One important approach to deal with these compounds is microbial bioremediation, which involves the use of bacterial strains with metabolic pathways capable of transforming these compounds into non-toxic products. These pathways provide an...[Show more]
