DEGRADACION BACTERIANA DE HIDROCARBUROS

Project Description
The aim of this study is to analyze the biodegradation capacity of the
Antarctic bacterial flora.

The research is comprised of the following steps:
-Isolation and screening of hydrocarbon degraders bacteria.
-Study of the optimal conditions for biodegradation.
-Study of the biosurfactants production.
-Relationship between plasmidic DNA and biodegradation capacity.
-Evaluation of the potential use of the strains in the designe of
bioremediation strategies.
