Structural and functional analysis of the microbial genes decomposing recalcitrant organic chemicals, and development of promising techniques for bacterial inoculation of contaminated environments

Study period:2001 - 2005
Research overview:
This project aims to develop promising bioremediation techniques for environments contaminated with recalcitrant organic chemicals such as chloroaromatics. Firstly, experimental methods will be developed for analysis of degrading ability, degradative pathways, and structures and functions of genes and enzymes responsible for the degradation of chloroaromatic compounds. Secondly, techniques will be developed for collection, isolation and characterization of bacteria decomposing triazine-type herbicides. In addition, on-site testing will be conducted for the development of bacterial inoculation of contaminated soils, and the elucidation of bacterial dynamics in the field.
