|65-418 Microbial Processes in Environmental Management F(3-0) [0.50]|
The metabolic basis of microbial processes fundamentally important in the management of agricultural, industrial or municipal wastes are examined. Topics covered include relevant considerations in using microorganisms for pollution control, factors that affect efficient microbial degradation in the environment, and major microbial enzyme systems/pathways for biodegradation of persistent pollutants. Emphasis will be placed on the biochemistry, physiology, genetics and biotechnological applications of pollutant-degrading microorganisms. Department of Environmental Biology.
