Degradation of xenobiotics: an investigation of microbiological events occurring within polluted sites with emphasis on those undergoing bioremediation
| Country: EU Projects
| Start Date:
Project Type: RTD
| Contract Number: EV5V-CT940539
| Organisation Type:

Diffuse pollution-->Diffuse pollution overview
| Project objectives:
The determination of the relative competitiveness and genetic stability of representative soil-derived xenobiotic degrading bacteria of different genera
using different catabolic pathways for the same or related aromatic xenobiotics.
The project was divided into two experimental sectors:
Competition experiments between a selected number of representative strains of different biochemical and taxonomic groups of bacteria under different
environmental conditions in both chemostat cultures and soil microcosms.
Characterisation of xenobiotic-degrading strains by genetic and biochemical analysis of their catbolic pathways.
