Summary
In Bioremediation Protocols leading researchers from around the world present their time-tested genetic, chemical, and analytical techniques for studying specific pollutants and their remediation. Their expert procedures range widely from cell immobilization and screening to microbiological and analytical chemistry methods that are applied to such environmental pollutants as hydrocarbons, PAHs, PCBs, TBT, and heavy metals. These pathbreaking contributors have also included illuminating reviews and case studies intended to expand the useful range of the methods. In addition, they discuss such major issues in bioremediation as the design and use of bioreactors, genetic manipulation, and the preparation and analysis of environmental samples. Bioremediation Protocols brings together the most useful work of scientists from a wide variety of disciplines. Its techniques are essential to harnessing the diversity of biological means now available to degrade, remove, alter, or otherwise detoxify the many harmful chemical compounds found in our environment today
