Microbiological and Molecular Tools for Remediation of Metal-Polluted sites
This is a PhD-project carried out by Stacie Tardif from Copenhagen University, Plant and Environmental Science, under the REMEDIATE program. The project is supervised by Kristian Koefoed Brandt.
The objective is to investigate the long-term effects of Chromium/Copper/Arsenic (CCA) contamination on soil microbial community composition, function, metal resistance and permissiveness for plasmid uptake. Another aim is to develop and apply more predictive, ecologically relevant methods for assessing soil contamination and remediation efforts.
For more information and expected time schedule, see the attached short project description.
