ORNL leading effort to help harness power of Shewanella

researchers gain a more complete understanding of the response systems in organisms such as Shewanella and how they respond to changes in their environment. This can be achieved through a combination of many different methods, including sampling of strains present at DOE waste sites, characterization of in situ and mutant physiologies and exploration of conditions conducive to optimal reduction of metals.

This is one of six recently announced DOE projects aimed at increasing knowledge of microbes and microbial communities with potential applications in bioremediation, ethanol and hydrogen production, cleanup of former nuclear weapons production sites and minimizing global warming by controlling the cycling of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
