2. Bioremediation. Bioremediation is a technique used to remove environmental contaminants from the ecosystem. It utilizes the biological mechanisms inherent in microbes and plants to eradicate hazardous pollutants and restore the ecosystem to its original condition .The basic principles of bioremediation involve reducing the solubility of these environmental contaminants by changing Cited by: Given the importance of the subject of soil heavy metal pollution and its effect on soil microorganisms, this chapter gives an overview of the severity of the problem when it comes to the reaction of soil microbial community to the environmental by:

Examining the microbial characteristics that enable microbes to grow in different environments, the book provides insights into relevant methodologies for characterization of microorganisms in the environment. The authors draw upon their extensive experience in teaching microbiology to address the latest hot-button topics in the field, such as/5(6).
The study of bacterial growth can be conducted in controlled laboratory studies using pure cultures of microorganisms, or in situ in environmental matrices such as soil, water or municipal wastes. Laboratory studies are generally conducted to characterize specific strains of bacteria, and can be used to optimize the commercial production of a variety of microbial products including antibiotics.
Microbial bioremediation serves as an alternative and effective strategy to remove toxic contaminants from a polluted environment. It could be achieved through the interaction of microbes with the toxic contaminants, which leads to immobilization, compartmentalization, and concentration of pollutants rather than their degradation and elimination from the environment.

In general, bioleaching is cleaner Microbial reaction to environment book safer for the environment than chemical processing. However environmental pollution with toxic products, like sulfuric acid from the pyrite leaching, and heavy metals is still possible.
Another drawback of microbial leaching is the slow rate at which microbes work. Discipline of molecular ecology and molecular techniques such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) offers a possibility to study and reveal the microbial diversity in environmental settings with complicated mixed communities, non-culturable organisms, interfering Cited by: 2.
The current state-of-the-art of environmental microbiology with an emphasis on molecular biology and genomics. A range of technologies and their applications in environmental microbiology. The book focuses on the microbial diversity and phylogeny of microorganisms in the environment and describes the molecular toolbox currently available for the study of the composition and diversity of.
For microbiology and environmental microbiology courses, this leading textbook builds on the academic success of the previous edition by including a comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of environmental microbiology as a discipline that has grown in scope and interest in recent years.
From environmental science and microbial ecology to topics in molecular genetics, this edition relates 5/5(1). This book chapter will address how the implementation of such culture-independent molecular methods allow the access to the microbial diversity and metabolic potential of microorganisms and bring novel information about microbial diversity and new pathways involved in biodegradation processes taking place in petroleum by: Reaction Mechanisms in Environmental Engineering: Analysis and Prediction describes the principles that govern chemical reactivity and demonstrates how these principles are used to yield more accurate predictions.
The book will help users increase accuracy in analyzing and predicting the speed of pollutant conversion in engineered systems, such as water and wastewater treatment plants, or in natural. Publisher Summary Biotechnology is any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, and derivatives to make or modify products and processes for specific use.
Humans have been manipulating genetic material for centuries. This chapter provides an overview of environmental biotechnology. Current technology and its applications in water microbiology, the topics and techniques are equally applicable to all branches of environmental microbiology.
The initial chapters cover the concentration, detection and characterization of microbes in drinking water, other chapters are technology focused and cover topics such as geochips and microarrays and their applications, Raman.
Numerous aspects of microbial existence are also discussed and include: species competition, predation, parasitism, mutualism, microbial communication through quorum sensing and other. The result is a context for understanding microbes in nature and a framework for microbiologists working in industry, medicine, and the by: The field of environmental microbiology encompasses aspects of several areas of study including microbial ecology, molecular genetics, and environmental science.
Environmental Microbiology is the first book to offer a comprehensive discussion of this field as a discipline, which the authors define as the study of microbial fate and activity in air, water, and soil, and the resulting.
The field of microbial ecology is experiencing a new era of discovery leading to a greater understanding of the patterns, processes and mechanisms governing the structure and dynamics of microbiomes.
This book presents selected recent hot-topics in the application of advanced omics methods to the field of microbial ecology. Some microbes produce vitamins and other essential nutrients. Many metabolize food that we can’t digest on our own. They also break down drugs and toxins, and regulate many aspects of innate and acquired immunity, protecting the host from infections and chronic inflammation, Cited by: The first is to extract energy from either an energy-yielding chemical reaction or from light energy.
The second is to apply that energy to the synthesis of new cell matter. To synthesize a microbial cell, one needs to know what makes up the insides of a : Roger Tim Haug. dioxide, metabolites and organic acids, which are released in the nearby environment.
It is this modification of the environment (not the bacteria themselves) which leads to corrosion; – autotrophic bacteria, which develop only in the presence of inorganic elements, while taking up energy from chemical or photochemical reactions .
No autotrophic bacteria for aluminium and its alloys are known. Biotechnology of Microbial Enzymes: Production, Biocatalysis and Industrial Applications provides a complete survey of the latest innovations on microbial enzymes, highlighting biotechnological advances in their production and purification along with information on successful applications as biocatalysts in several chemical and industrial processes under mild and green conditions.
Expert international authors critically review all of the most important topics in this exciting field. Although other books covering this are currently available, this book is unique in that it is the first to review the area from a molecular biology and genomics perspective.
Topics covered include: aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation of aromatic compounds, molecular detection methods e.g. Microbial Biodegradation and Bioremediation brings together experts in relevant fields to describe the successful application of microbes and their derivatives for bioremediation of potentially toxic and relatively novel compounds.
This single-source reference encompasses all categories of pollutants and their applications in a convenient, comprehensive package.Microbial biodegradation is the use of bioremediation and biotransformation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, transform or accumulate environmental pollutants, including hydrocarbons (e.g.
oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds (such as pyridine or quinoline).
