New video published by the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) on Dr. Raquel Peixoto's protocol: Prospecting Microbial Strains for Bioremediation and Probiotics Development for Metaorganism Research and Preservation.
Pollution affects all biomes. Marine environments have been particularly impacted, especially coral reefs, one of the most sensitive ecosystems on Earth. Bioremediation is the capacity of organisms to degrade contaminants. Here, we describe methodologies to isolate and test microbes presenting bioremediation ability and potential probiotic characteristics for corals.
