CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Since its first systematic application during the 1970s, bioremediation, or
the exploitation of a biological system’s degradative potential to combat toxic
pollutants such as heavy metals, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), cyanides, and
radioactive material, has proven itself over time, and the many advances in
molecular techniques have only amplified its utility. In Bioremediation:
Methods and Protocols, experts in the field explore imaginative and ambitious
multidisciplinary techniques that will enable more predictable removal of
pollutants from a variety of environments. The easy-to-follow volume addresses
some of the broader issues such as the effect of the environment in determining
the availability and fate of organic and inorganic compounds and how choices
around the most appropriate bioremediation process can be arrived at, as well
as detailed complementary techniques that support the effective deployment and
monitoring of a bioremediation approach. Written in the highly successful
Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to
their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents,
step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and
avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Bioremediation:
Methods and Protocols offers researchers a series of invaluable techniques
certain to enhance their work with environmental contamination.
