Leading researchers from around the world present their best 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, and they discuss such major issues in bioremediation as the design and use of bioreactors, genetic manipulation, and the preparation and analysis of environmental samples.
...a practical addition to the series of books in Methods in Biotechnology...It will be a useful reference book to those involved with experimental protocols in the area of bioremediation. Given the extremely wide range of pollutants, as well as the techniques that are or could be used in the bioremediation field, this book does a very good job in presenting a variety of methods,...Finally, the book ends with a comprehensive listing of abbreviations and acronyms and a useful subject index. This is a well-presented and useful book for researchers in the bioremediation field.-Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology
