Comparing cultivation-dependent and cultivation-independent approaches for characterizing activated sludge and soil bacterial populations degrading a model pollutant, 2-chloropropionic acid (2MCPA)
Hama Chawash, Kwestan;
Extensive use of organic halogenated chemicals in many areas of agriculture and industry has resulted in widespread presence of toxic and carcinogenic compounds in the environment, creating many problems. Bacteria are able to degrade these harmful compounds, primarily b... View more
