Bioremediation of heavy metalsPublic
This project involved the study of an isolated bacteria from an environmental soil sample. A strain of bacteria was selected which survived very high levels of copper. The bacterium was also shown to tolerate cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, gold, silver, arsenic, and yttrium. This bacterium also has the ability to take up metals. Although DNA sequencing provided a tentative identification of Bacillus thuringiensis, further testing will be required in order to judge the appropriateness of this identification.
