Diverse groups of microorganisms are involved in biodegradation of organic contaminants, and these organisms vary widely in adaptations and responses to in situ conditions, which can complicate managing bioremediation projects involving indigenous organisms. However, would bioremediation proceed differently with knowledge of the identity of active degraders at a given site? Until recently, it has not often been a question worthy of discussion, given the difficulty of establishing such information, but that is changing with the advent of tools designed for that purpose. Among the recent advancements in ecological methods, applications of stable isotope probing, stand out for providing the potential to establish the identity of microorganisms involved in biodegradation in situ.
Peer reviewed Bioremediation & Biodegradation Journal, is an important and reliable source of current information on developments in the field. It publishes original papers, reviewed papers, case studies and short communications on the fundamentals, theoretical as well as applications and management of environment.
Open access refers to the unrestricted access to peer-reviewed scholarly research. OMICS Group hosts over 500 leading-edge peer reviewed Open Access Journals with 50,000+ editorial board members Members and organize over 3000+ International Scientific Conferences annually all over the world and OMICS group by publishing articles under the umbrella of Life sciences group journals and 5th International conference on Biotechnology-2014 provides a great platform for the researchers, entrepreneurs, students to exchange their views and ideologies on remediation.
