Microbial Degradation

Microbial degradation is the use of biocatalysis and biotransformation and bioremediation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, accumulate or transform harmful environmental pollutants, including , polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs),hydrocarbons (e.g.oil), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs),  radionuclides, heterocyclic compounds (such as quinoline or pyridine), pharmaceutical products and metals.
 
Interest in the microbial biodegradation of pollutants has improved in recent years, and latest major methodological breakthroughs have enabled detailed Genomic, Proteomic, Metagenomic, Bio-informatic and other high-throughput techniques analyses of environmentally relevant microorganisms, providing new ways into wide bio-degradative pathways and ability of organisms to adapt to changing environmental parameters and conditions.
