By Corinne Whitby, Torben Lund Skovhus

Applied Microbiology and Molecular Biology in Oil box structures addresses the main difficulties microbes reason in oil fields, (e.g. biocorrosion and souring) and the way helpful microbial actions should be exploited (e.g. MEOR and biofuels). The e-book describes theoretical and functional methods to precise Molecular Microbiological equipment (MMM), and is written by way of top professionals within the box from either academia and undefined. The e-book describes how MMM could be utilized to faciliate higher administration of oil reservoirs and downstream procedures. The publication is leading edge in that it utilises actual commercial case reviews which provides invaluable technical and clinical info to researchers, engineers and microbiologists operating with oil, fuel and petroleum systems.

Phytoremediation and Rhizoremediation : Theoretical Background

Lately a increase will be visible in literature facing phytoremediation. This quantity includes exact rationalization of easy tools the place vegetation are exploited in environmental remediation. The chapters symbolize a very good description of the most well liked themes within the box of phyto- and rhizoremediation.

Parasit-Wirt-Beziehungen: Einfuhrung in die okologische Parasitologie

Parasiten sind uns nicht angenehm, denn sie leben auf Kosten anderer. Betrachtet guy aber den Wirtsorganismus als enge ökologische Nische, so findet guy faszinierende Anpassungen an den Lebensraum in und auf einem fremden Lebewesen. Diese vielfältigen Überlebensstrategien mußten auch Parasiten im Laufe der Evolution entwickeln.

These cDNA gene fragments then can be analysed with DGGE, similar to a common DNA analysis, as described here. g. pollution with heavy metals, oil). RNA expression is much more sensitive to this kind of change than DNA; subsequently information that can be obtained from RNA can be more detailed than information from DNA. With RNA analysis a smaller subset of the population can be targeted. But since RNA is an unstable molecule, it is hard to keep the RNA intact. Therefore, RNA analysis is more difficult than DNA analysis.

Even if it is possible to obtain large volumes of sample material, samples containing oil, fine clays or other contaminating material can make DNA extraction problematic.
