Microbial diversity in the SRE4 marine biodegradation experiment
Entry ID: SRE4_tRFLP_all

Abstract: The diversity of the microbial communities in each treatment in the SRE4 in situ biodegradation experiment were examined using terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism of the 16S rRNA gene. The SRE4 experiment was a field experiment that looked at the effect of synthetic lubricant, used synthetic lubricant, a biodegradable lubricant and special Antarctic blend (SAB) diesel on the marine ...
