Helping chlorine-eating bacteria clean up toxic waste

...coccoides ethenogenes, discovered in Ithaca sewage sludge in 1997 by James Gossett, Cornell professor of civil and environmental engineering, and isolated and studied by Stephen Zinder, Cornell professor of microbiology, are now in wide use to detoxify such carcinogenic chemicals as perchloroethylene (PCE) ...

New science of metagenomics 'will transform modern microbiology'

...soil and seawater, or managed environments such as sludge processing sites. The large projects would be "virtual" centers collecting data from scientists working at many locations around the world, and would probably need to be sustained for 10 years, the report notes.
