A short ride through a laboratory thesis project

The interaction of microorganisms with pollutants has lead to the development of an exciting field of research for environmentalists. The unprecedented interest in bioremediation and its applications stems from the failure of aggressive and invasive treatment methods that disturb ecosystems by stuffing them with unnecessary quantities of chemicals. Therefore, the use of microorganisms represents a viable, cost-effective decontamination alternative that is based on natural processes and can be scaled up for industrial or other purposes.
