Credit Seminar on Heavy Metal Bioremediation

Industrial activities release a wide range of toxic heavy metals in the biosphere, wild type micro-organisms has an ability to bind heavy metals. A number of new recombinant DNA techniques have been developed for genetically engineered microorganisms for biodegradation, biofixation, bioacumulation of heavy metals. These techniques include new expression vectors to carry the genes into the host organism, new mechanisms to control gene expression, containment mechanisms to control persistence of genetically-engineered microorganisms, application of site-directed and random mutagenesis to increase the substrate range or activity of biodegradative enzymes, and methods to track genetically-engineered microorganisms.
