Metagenomic study of dechlorinating microbial communities invitro and in situ, part 2

The project is focused on study of commercial microbial cultures for biological remediation of soils and ground waters contaminated by chlorinated organic compounds. The successful elaboration and improvement of the products requires analysis on molecular-genetic level and detailed understating of organization of the microbial communities. The work benefits to industry partner by providing comprehensive information on functional and taxonomic structure, metabolic models of the studied microbial communities and key microorganisms involved in dechlorination of chloroform.
