Microbial transformation and degradation of toxic organic chemicals
Using theoretical, field and applied perspectives, leading experts examine the role of microbes in the degradation of toxic organic chemicals. This up-to-the-minute work covers all areas of environmental contamination: water, soil and the atmosphere. Contains current research on the metabolic processing of organic chemicals as well as the genes conferring the ability to metabolize them. The research presented includes stimulation and bioremediation by endogenous microbes and genetically engineered organisms.
