    Microbiology covers the scope and sequence requirements for a single-semester microbiology course for non-majors. The book presents the core concepts of microbiology with a focus on applications for careers in allied health. The pedagogical features of the text make the material interesting and accessible while maintaining the career-application focus and scientific rigor inherent in the /5(18). Microbial bioremediation is the use of microbial metabolism to remove or degrade xenobiotics and other environmental contaminants and pollutants. Enhanced bioremediation techniques may involve the introduction of non-native microbes specifically chosen or engineered for .

    Energy flows directionally through ecosystems, entering as sunlight for phototroph s or as inorganic molecules for chemoautotroph s. The six most common elements associated with organic molecules—carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur—take a variety of chemical forms and may exist for long periods in the atmosphere, on. Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification or genetic manipulation, is the direct manipulation of an organism's genes using biotechnology. It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved.

Genetic engineering of enhanced microbial nitrification. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory, [] (OCoLC) Introduction Nitrification, the conversion of ammonia to nitrite, is a desirable process in wastewater treatment facilities.

Improvement of the nitrification process by genetic engineering of nitrifiers would provide a variety of benefits, e.g. nitrifiers needing less retention time, nitrifiers resistant to pollutants.

Experiments were conducted to introduce genetic information in the form of antibiotic or mercuric ion resistance genes into Nitrobacter hamburgensis strain X The resistance genes were either stable components of broad host range plasmids or transposable genes on methods for plasmid transformation as well as conjugation with various donor strains of Escherichia coli failed to achieve this goal.

Genetic engineering of Indian mustard resulted in transgenic plants that are superior for the removal of trace elements.

Superior free-living microbes that are superior candidates for the bioremediation of Selenium have been isolated. The developments of genetic engineering have made a considerable revolution in the field of bioremediation. The objective of the genetic engineering was thus focused on development of host system equipped with altered enzymatic activities responsible for resistance and on-site degradation of intended : Arvind Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Rishikesh Singh, Raghwendra Singh, Shilpi Pandey, Archana Rai, Vipin Kumar.

Genetic Engineering. As noted in Chapter 1, this report defines genetic engineering specifically as one type of genetic modification that involves an intended targeted change in a plant or animal gene sequence to effect a specific result through the use of rDNA technology.

A variety of genetic engineering techniques are described in the following text. Nitrification Introduction The goal of this document is to review existing literature, research and information on the potential public health implications associated with Nitrification. Nitrification is a microbial process by which reduced nitrogen compounds (primarily ammonia) are sequentially oxidized to nitrite and nitrate.

Genetic Engineering Genetic engineering is the alteration of an organism’s genotype using recombinant DNA technology to modify an organism’s DNA to achieve desirable traits.

The addition of foreign DNA in the form of recombinant DNA vectors generated by molecular cloning is the most common method of genetic engineering. Biodegradation is defined as the biologically catalyzed reduction in complexity of chemical compounds [ 1 ]. Indeed, biodegradation is the process by which organic substances are broken down into smaller compounds by living microbial organisms [ 2 ].

When biodegradation is complete, the process is called "mineralization". However, in most cases Cited by: The book covers essential topics that include: Diversity and functions of microorganisms in environmental engineering systems Environmental bioengineering processes Applied microbial Author: Volodymyr Ivanov.

Overexpression of ACCase in the oleaginous seeds of B. napus resulted in a minor increase in seed lipid content of about 6% ( mg g −1 and mg g −1 dry weight for wild-type [WT] and transgenic ACCase rapeseed lines, respectively).

Interestingly, the effect of ACCase overexpression in potato tubers, Cited by: Sediment microbial fuel cells (SMFCs) can stimulate the degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in sediments, but the mechanism of this process is poorly understood at the microbial functional gene level.

Here, the use of SMFC resulted in 92% benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) removal over days relative to 54% in the controls. Sediment functions, microbial community structure, and network Cited by: G enetic engineering has always been a go-to plot line in science fiction movies and TV shows.
