Title: Environmental biomonitoring through the utilization of molecular microbial bioindicators: biotechnological tool supporting decision-takers on the efficiency of a remediation process of soils polluted with organic compounds (BIOZORU).
Funded by: Biscay County Council (BIZKAITEK Programme).
To develop a variety of biotechnological tools (molecular bioindicators) for the assessment of the efficiency of a bioremediation process of soils polluted with organic compounds.
(I) To develop molecular bioindicators of the structural biodiversity of the soil microbial communities.
(II) To develop bioindicators (microbial biomass C, ATP) of soil microbial biomass.
(III) To test the validity of these bioindicators to assess the efficiency of a bioremediation (biostimulation) process of soils polluted with hydrocarbons.
